Mumbai Hoarding Collapse Claims 14 Lives, Leaves 74 Injured; FIR Filed

At least 14 people were killed and 74 injured after a 100-feet-tall illegal billboard fell in Mumbai’s Ghatkopar during a dust storm and rain on Monday evening. According to civic officials, the billboard, which was illegal, uprooted and fell on a petrol pump at the Cheddanagar Junction in Ghatkopar.
A 30-second video of the incident surfaced, showing the massive billboard falling over the petrol pump area, leaving several people trapped.
Following the incident, the Mumbai police have filed a case against the ad agency owner and others for culpable homicide not amounting to murder and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code. According to officials, Bhavesh Bhinde, the owner of M/s Ego Media Private Limited, has been booked in the incident.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar assured stringent action in the matter. In a post on his official X handle on Monday, Phansalkar said, “Heartfelt condolences to families who lost their loved ones in the unfortunate mishap at Ghatkopar. The Mumbai Police team is on the spot in the rescue operation. We assure citizens that stringent legal action will be taken against those responsible for this mishap.”
