Kolkata: Building collapses entirely in Bowbazar; area was evacuated

A 3-story building has collapsed in Kolkata's Bowbazar where tunnel boring work for East-West Metro corridor is being undertaken. The whole area was already evacuated earlier and residents have been moved to nearby hotels.

The KMRC is constructing the East-West Metro corridor connecting IT hub Sector V in Salt Lake to Howrah Maidan. Tunnels have been bored under the River Hooghly to connect the twin cities of Kolkata and Howrah through the rapid transit system.

Kolkata Metro Railway Corporation (KMRC) has assured that the portion will be reconstructed and buildings, where cracks have appeared, will also be repaired.
