A 25-metre section of the lower Mall Road in Nainital collapsed and fell into water below. Traffic had to be diverted to upper Mall Road. This road had also broken during the summer season due to heavy traffic. While officials inspected the broken road, they have assured that the road will be rebuilt soon. Locals, meanwhile, blamed officials, saying overloaded vehicles are allowed on the road and this weakens the road surface.
