An under-construction bridge collapsed in the Bena police station area of ​​Bihar's Nalanda district on Friday. It is unclear as to how many people are buried under the rubble. The incident took place at Bhagan Bigha Chowk.

During construction work on the Bakhtiyarpur-Rajauli road, a large portion of the bridge collapsed. Two workers died on the spot, as per reports. Personnel from Vena Police Station and Bhagan Bigha Police Station rushed to the spot to assess the situation and expedite the rescue operation.

BDO Laxman Kumar said the construction of the four-lane bridge was underway at the time of the incident. According to the locals, a big chute fell when a big crane machine was placing it over the bridge. Locals claimed that the incident happened due to the negligence of the authority.

"It happened when it was under construction. Who gives a guarantee of safety once it is built," said Lallan, a local to a media outlet. In June 2022, part of a bridge being built over the Kosi River was washed away due to heavy water in Bhagalpur district of Bihar.
