ITANAGAR: At least 50 people were feared killed when a suspension bridge over the Kameng river collapsed at Seppa in East Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh on Saturday evening.
Superintendent of Police Kime Aya said the casulties occurred when villagers, who had set out to hunt, were crossing the bridge at around 5:30pm.
The entire bridge collapsed with all those on it falling into the river, he said.
He said two persons managed to swim to safety but around 50 others were feared dead.
The swift current in the river was hindering rescue operations, Aya said.
