BHUBANESWAR, India (Reuters) - At least one person was killed and several others injured when an under-construction flyover bridge collapsed on Sunday in eastern India, officials said.
A portion of the bridge collapsed in Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha state where over a dozen workers were working.
"We have suspended two engineers who were supervising the work," engineer-in-chief and secretary of Odisha’s works department Nalini Kanta Pradhan told Reuters.
