Four persons, including a minor were killed and five others injured when a bridge collapsed near Christian Institute of Health Sciences and Research in Nagaland’s Dimapur on Tuesday, the police said.

Deputy Commissioner of Dimapur Kesonyu Yhome said so far four persons, including two women from Tripura, were killed in the incident.

The DC said the deceased are yet to be identified and added that the injured are being treated at a local hospital.

An alternative route connecting the highway linking Dimapur with Kohima is being arranged for commuters, he added.

District administration officials said plying of heavy vehicles was stopped on the bridge in 2015, but light vehicles were allowed as the road connected over 100 villages.

Meanwhile, neighbouring Assam continues to be under the grip of floodwaters. Wild animals in the state’s Kaziranga Park have been stranded, as some parts of the wildlife zone remain inundated.

Owing to massive floods, ferry services have been suspended in Guwahati.
