In 2018 an under-constructed bridge near Varanasi railway station got collapsed because of a lack of engineering efforts and fault in construction procedures.

A piece of news is getting viral on social media platforms where users are claiming that the contractor who made the bridge has not got arrested yet. Nineteen people were killed in the collapse and the rest were severely injured. Many users are reviving the 2018 Bridge Collapse Case.
