A section of the 50-year-old Majerhat bridge on the arterial Diamond Harbour Road in south Kolkata collapsed on Tuesday evening, leaving one dead, trapping several people and crushing many a vehicle. The search and rescue operation is still underway to clear the place. The Majerhat bridge, which runs over the Majerhat Railway Station and connects the city centre with the heavily populated Behala, vast areas of the southwest suburbs and neighbouring South 24 Parganas district, caved at around 4.45 pm during rush hour.
