PM Modi cancels road show in Ahmedabad; Underwater rescue operations activated

Gujarat | The Morbi bridge collapsed on Sunday

A nearly century-old suspension bridge over the Machchhu River in the Gujarat town of Morbi collapsed on Sunday evening, officials said. At least 140 people died in the incident.

Due to the Diwali holiday and a Sunday, there was a rush of tourists on the bridge, a major tourist attraction. A private operator had been carrying out the repair work on the bridge for almost six months before it reopened to the public on the Gujarati New Year’s Day celebrated on October 26. A fire official said boats were being used to rescue people from the river. .
