No loss of life or property has been reported as of now.
It is alleged that the use of substandard material and unseasonal rainfall are the reasons behind the collapse. "This is because of the carelessness that was on show by the authorities. The authorities never showed up when this flyover was being constructed," Pradeep Kumar, Sarpanch, Pahari Village told ANI.
Further details are awaited.
