Also, nine others were injured in the unfortunate incident. Injured people have been sent to the hospital for the treatment.

"Around 2 PM, the hoarding was being dismantled by a contractor hired by the Railways when it came crashing down," said B Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police told PTI.

The deceased were identified as Shamrao Kasar (70), Shamrao Dhotre (48) and Shivaji Pardeshi (40), he said.

The injured were rushed to the nearby government-run Sassoon General Hospital.

There seemed to be some negligence on the part of the contractor, Singh said, adding that a case will be registered under relevant sections of the IPC.

Fire brigade officials said that five auto-rickshaws, one two-wheeler and one car were damaged in the accident.

A probe has been ordered into the incident.
