New Delhi: A day after six people were killed when an under-construction bridge of Delhi Metro collapsed in Delhi, at least four persons were on Monday injured in another accident at the same site during clearance of the debris.
Two cranes, lifting a launcher that was entangled in the crumbled section of a collapsed bridge, toppled in south Delhi’s Jamrudpur area, the accident site, causing injuries to four persons.
The launcher came down along with the two cranes when its wires snapped and collapsed, eyewitnesses said.
They said they saw police taking away those injured from the site soon after the mishap.
Delhi Metro spokesperson Anuj Dayal said only one crane had toppled.
Police have cordoned off the area and are trying to ascertain if there is anybody trapped in the debris, the eyewitnesses said.
