Six people were injured after a concrete bridge, linking Chamba town in Himachal Pradesh with Pathankot in Punjab, collapsed on Thursday due to sheer negligence.

The injured have been taken to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and immediate treatment has been given to them.

District Collector Sudesh Kumar Mokhta with other officials reached the spot and took charge of the situation.

“The collapse of the bridge is because of a default in the construction map or the poor use of material in the construction. We have ordered an inquiry and action will be taken,” he said.
