Roof portion collapses at Nehru stadium complex

A portion of false ceiling in the Commonwealth Games weightlifting venue in Delhi caved in on Wednesday, a day after 27 workers were injured when a footbridge collapsed near the same sports complex.

“It is minor. It is only a false ceiling coming down, or parts of it. It will be corrected now,” Cabinet Secretary K.M. Chandrasekhar, who oversees Games preparations, told CNN-IBN television.

“It is not something to be worried about ... it is not a major kind of collapse.”

Local TV stations reported that no one was injured. One local journalist near the scene said the roof collapsed on the area where jurors would seat near the weightlifting stage.
