Article mentions a video of the incident. Anyone have a link to that?

I bet If that happened in the USA they wouldn’t be arresting the business construction people responsible

They arrested the low level but not the politician who called the local district collector (government officer) and told him to authorize it without delay. The big guys got paid their money

It would be more efficient if there was just a bot that posted in every comment thread of every sub to remined people "Hey America is bad". Lot less effort.

They would be rewarded for killing off the undesirables who have to walk over a shoddy bridge to get where they’re going

Wow. I said this was intentional on another post and got DRUG in the comments. Turns out I was right. Still tragic...

Reading the article it seems people were arrested because of shady business practices of one kind or another, not terrorist sabotage. Still in the early stages though.

The people on the bridge shaking the hell out of it definitely had something to do with it. I'll die on that hill lmao.

A basic part of any design is “what happens when the stupidest person possible uses this thing?” Guarding against this sort of thing is on the architects and engineers involved with this project, the morons were inevitable.

If this wasnt India. I'd agree with you. They aren't known for having extraordinary building safety practices

It doesn’t read as if they think it’s an intentional act.

I understand that. I'm sure the didn't intend to collapse it on purpose. But their actions caused the collapse.

Yes but in the form of failed design and repair (as in bad engineers and architects)

Oh yeah for sure. Such a rapid arrest means they either know they can make charges stick or they were worried about them skipping out.
