The approach road of a minor bridge was cut off due to surging swollen waters in the river Gandak that is two km away from the Sattarghat bridge.
The Sattarghat bridge situated over the Gandak river in Gopalganj of Bihar is intact. The minor 18-meter bridge that approaches the road is two kilometers away from the main Sattarghat bridge and has collapsed due to the massive water inflow in the Gandak river. The 1,440-meter-long Sattarghat bridge, which was inaugurated by Nitish Kumar, the Chief Minister of Bihar, on June 16 through video conferencing, is intact and has not been damaged. Nanda Kishore, the State Road Construction Department Minister, said that the media is making false reports that Sattarghat bridge has collapsed within 29 days of inauguration by the chief minister.
