Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday met the victims of flyover collapse incident at Banaras Hindu University Trauma Center and Kabir Chaura Hospital.

Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya said today that the state government will set up a "bridge safety cell" to regularly inspect flyovers and bridges.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has announced an ex gratia of Rs 5 lakh each for the next of kin of the deceased and Rs 2 lakh for the critically injured.

Samajwadi Party (SP) workers on Wednesday protested at Varanasi flyover accident site in Uttar Pradesh which killed at least 18 people.

The corporation received flak earlier after some bridges built by it developed cracks.

An official told IANS that most vehicles trapped beneath tonnes of concrete and iron have been removed.

'Lando' Movie in the Works, Says Lucasfilm Chief Kathleen Kennedy
I kind of wish this movie was titled, Han Solo and the Kessel Run , or whatever, and we just jumped into the action. This can be used in your favor as a storyteller but instead it just made it hard to decide if I liked her or not.

Five teams of the National Disaster Response Force were deployed to carry out rescue operations at the scene, along with Army Medical Corps and police. "At least four cars, an auto-rickshaw and a minibus were crushed under it", they said.

Chief Project Manager H C Tiwari and three others were suspended late on Tuesday night. The portion of the bridge that collapsed was laid only two months ago.

Meanwhile, Chandra Prakash, Additional Director General (Crime) said, "A flyover was under construction, which collapsed suddenly". I pray that the injured recover soon.

The flyover collapsed primarily because two beams holding up the concrete slabs buckled, say sources. The compensation will be given from the Prime Minister relief fund.

The state government ordered an inquiry into both the incidents but didn't take any action against top engineers and officers for the poor quality of construction work.

The state government probe will be headed by Agriculture Production Commissioner Raj Pratap Singh and will include Irrigation Department head Bhupendra Singh and Jal Nigam MD Rajesh Mittal, Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said.
