An assistant engineer of Mumbai's civic body was arrested yesterday in connection with last month's foot overbridge (FOB) collapse at CSMT station here that had left six persons dead. This is the second arrest in the case. DCP Manjunath Singe, spokesperson of the Mumbai Police said the accused, S F Kakulte, working with the bridges department of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), was taken into custody last evening after interrogation by the Azad Maidan police. 

Kakulte was booked under IPC section 304A (causing death by negligence). The police had earlier arrested structural auditor Neerajkumar Desai in the case who had allegedly given clearance for continued use of the ill-fated bridge after a structural audit. Six persons were killed and 31 others injured when the 40-year-old FOB collapsed during evening rush hours on March 14.
