Four days after a portion of an under-construction flyover collapsed in the city, killing at least 26 people, operations to clear the area and dismantle two dangerously hanging decks are still underway.

But some images which are going viral on the social media are of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) volunteers who are working in the relief operations with police, NDRF and other security personnel.

A Facebook post on RSS' official page said, "Close to 200 swayamsevaks (RSS workers) worked throughout the night in relief operations."

Here are the images:

Engineers are busy laying concrete blocks beneath the two hanging decks of the flyover to stop those from falling. "The decks weigh nearly over 300 tonnes. We are stacking concrete blocks underneath the decks to stabilise those before trying to dismantle them," an engineer said.
