Day after crash, Mumbai’s FOB demolished

Mumbai, Mar 15 (UNI) A day after a portion of the footover bridge (FOB) outside the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) crashed killing six person and injuring 32 others, the civic authorities on Friday ordered demolition of the remaining structure.

A team of workers clambered up and began breaking the footbridge apart, and the work is expected to be completed later tonight. Till now more than seventy per cent of the FOB has been razed.

Often referred to as the ‘Kasab bridge’ the footbridge connects the suburban and harbor line platforms of Central Railway with a narrow BT Lane exiting to the historic Azad Maidan.

This was the same bridge that the Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab and his Fidayeen partner Ismail Khan had climbed to go to the Madam Cama & Albless Hospital, after the bloodbath killing 58 people in the CSMT on the fateful night of November 26, 2008, known as the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
