Another bridge collapsed today in Bihar’s Siwan district, making it the seventh bridge to fall apart in the state over the past two weeks. This time, it happened in Deoria block, connecting several villages with Mahrajganj.

Thankfully, no one was hurt in the collapse. Officials are trying to figure out exactly why it happened. They suspect heavy rain might have played a role, weakening the bridge over the Gandaki river.

This is the second bridge to collapse in Siwan in less than two weeks. The government is concerned about the state of bridges across Bihar. Similar incidents have occurred recently in other districts like Madhubani, Araria, East Champaran, and Kishanganj.

Authorities are investigating these collapses closely to prevent more accidents.
