At least 17 employees were killed when a railway bridge under construction fell on Wednesday close to the Sairang district of Mizoram, police said.
Since 35 to 40 workmen were present when the event happened at 10 am, about 21 miles from Aizawl, they believe that several more people are trapped at the scene.
“Seventeen bodies have been recovered from the debris so far. Many others are still missing,” a police officer said.
More details are awaited..
