Kota, Dec 26: At least 45 people are presumed killed in the under-construction bridge collapse in the Chambal river, an official said.

Dozens of workers plunged into the water late Thursday, Dec 24, when the bridge on which they were working collapsed in the Chambal river on the outskirts of the city of Kota in Rajasthan state.

"At least 45 people are presumed to have died in the bridge collapse," senior police official Rajeev Dasot was quoted by news agency.

The bridge was being jointly built by South Korea's Hyundai Engineering and Gammon India.

Two senior project managers, including a South Korean national, have been arrested on accusations of culpable homicide, Dasot said.
