Around 31 people got injured and six died after a bridge collapsed at CSMT station.

The deceased have been identified as Apoorva Prabhu (35), Ranjana Tambe (40) and Zahid Shiraj Khan (32).

Thousands of commuters have used the 39-year-old bridge daily to reach Mumbai's bustling Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus railway station. Incidentally, several of the injured in the collapse were taken to GT hospital.

Traffic between CSMT and Crawford Market has been affected. Incidentally, it was only after a road overbridge - Gokhale bridge in Andheri - collapsed killing two persons that BMC had publicised the audit report.

It is also referred to as the "Kasab bridge" as the 26/11 Mumbai attack terrorist passed through it. This happens to be the second ever incident of bridge collapse in the last one year in Mumbai. Before the signal turned green, the bridge came down along with people on it.

Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant rushed to the site of accident, and assured an inquiry into the FOB collapse.

Meanwhile, Mumbai BJP leader Sanju Verma said the bridge collapse was a "natural calamity".

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said he was "pained" to hear of the tragedy, and spoke to BMC Commissioner Ajoy Mehta and Mumbai Police and instructed them to ensure speedy relief efforts.

The accident comes nearly two years after 23 people died in a crush on a narrow overcrowded footbridge at Prabhadevi station in the centre of the city in September 2017. Bridge wasn't in a bad condition, it required minor repairs for which work was underway.

"Modi government and Maharashtra government are criminally culpable for inaction leading to repeat tragedies: 29/9/2017 - Elphistone Stampede, 3/7/2018 - Andheri bridge collapse", Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted hours after the incident, expressing condolences for the family of the victims.

"This incident puts a question mark over the competence of engineers and structural auditors who inspected bridges in Mumbai". It is a public FOB, and not a railway FOB.

On Thursday, the news agency ANI quoted the Ministry of Railways as saying the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation was responsible for the foot overbridge at CST.
