Indian police file homicide case after overpass collapse kills 23
By Supriyo Hazra KOLKATA, India (Reuters) - Indian police on Friday opened a case of culpable homicide against the company building an overpass that collapsed in the eastern city of Kolkata, killing at least 23 people and injuring dozens more. Rescuers worked all night with cranes and jackhammers to clear concrete slabs and steel girders from the 100-meter (110-yard) length of the overpass that broke off suddenly and crashed down on pedestrians and vehicles on the road below. "It is being ensured that there are no more dead bodies under the debris," S.S. Guleria, a deputy inspector general of the National Disaster Response Force, told Reuters Television.
