    Chennai Metro Rail MD says 'reason behind the incident can only be determined after examination', reports ANI.

    In April 2017, a portion of the arterial Anna Salai in Chennai had caved in near the Thousand Lights mosque pulling down a bus and a car.

    Thirty-five passengers were evacuated immediately from the bus (number 25G). The fire department later pulled the car and the bus out using cranes. 

    In the same year, a crater in the size of a manhole was developed on the same road. Underneath the road, Teynampet metro station is being built.
