2 killed as bridge falls near Shimla

Shimla, July 29
Two persons were killed and two others seriously injured when an overbridge, constructed on the key Dhami-Basantpur-Kingal Highway last year to provide all-weather connectivity to Rampur and Kinnaur, gave in.

Four cement-laden trucks were parked on the bridge built by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) when the mishap took place last night, the police said today. Two persons died on the spot while two others sustained grievous injuries, they said.

The BRO said it would probe the incident.

The road is a vital link for transportation of Army supplies upto Kaurik on the Indo-Tibet border and also for carrying apple and other agriculture produce from Kinnaur and Rampur areas to various markets.

The traffic from the road has now been diverted to the alternate route via Narkanda on the Hindustan Tibet National Highway, officials said. PTI
