Prayagraj, Jan 10 (UNI) Two labourers were injured when a portion of the building, which was being built to be used as a heliport during Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj, collapsed.
Several construction works have been taken up in Prayagraj ahead of the Kumbh Mela, which is slated to begin on January 15. A new temporary city, which is believed to be the largest in the world, has been set up along Prayagraj, which has 250-km long roads and 22 pontoon bridges.
The incident occurred just 24 hours before the arrival of the UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath, who is visiting here on Thursday.
However, authorities have ordered a probe into the reason behind the incident which occurred on Wednesday night, sources here on Thursday said.
