New Delhi, Mar 24 (ANI): At least two people suffered injured when an underconstruction pillar at a Metro Rail Corporation site near Savita Vihar suddenly crumbled here pm Wednesday evening.

The injured included an auto rickshaw driver.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is undertaking massive construction work ahead of Commonwealth Games at many parts of the city.

On October 19, 2008 a girder launcher and a part of the Blue Line Indraprastha-New Ashok Nagar extension under construction overhead metro line in Laxmi Nagar, East Delhi collapsed and fell on passing vehicles underneath.

Workers were lifting a 400-tonne concrete span of the bridge with the help of a crane when the launcher collapsed along with a 34m long span of the bridge on top of a Blueline bus killing the driver and a labourer.

On July 12, 2009 a portion of a bridge under construction collapsed when its launching girder lost balance as it was being erected at Zamrudpur, near East of Kailash, on the Central Secretariat- Badarpur corridor slated to be opened September 2010.

Six people were killed and 15 others injured.

The day after, on July 13, 2009 a crane that was removing the debris collapsed, and with a bowling pin effect collapsed two other nearby cranes, injuring six.

On July 22, 2009 a steel beam fell on a worker at the under-construction Ashok Park Metro station.

On October 3, 2009, another crane toppled at an under construction site in South Delhi's Saidullah Ajab area, causing no injuries.(ANI)
