**Gajapati**: A 10-metre bridge connecting Gumma Block to Jagannathpur village in Gajapati district caved in due to incessant rains today, leaving two motorcyclists critically injured.
Both the motorcyclists have been admitted to the Government Primary Health Centre in the district. Rajani Kanta Swain, sub-collector of Gajapati, has assured that all costs of their treatment will be reimbursed by the administration.
Commenting on the repair work, Swain said, “I will immediately file a detailed report after which the restoration work will begin.”
Meanwhile, the collapse of the bridge has caused inconvenience to the locals who have to now navigate along the border of the approach road.
