New Delhi: Two people died on Friday morning after their motorcycle rammed into a divider at the newly-inaugurated Signature Bridge in New Delhi.

The passengers fell off the bridge after their two-wheeler hit the divider. Both of them died on the spot. 

The Delhi Police received a PCR call at 8:50 am regarding the incident. 

"The two men were rushed to a nearby hospital, where they were later declared dead," Deputy Commissioner of Police A.K. Thakur said.

"Being a left turn, the possibility of the victims performing stunts has been ruled out," he added.

There have been multiple incidents of law and order violations ever since the Signature Bridge was opened for public on November 4.  

It has raised questions among the public regarding the Arvind Kejriwal government’s pet project that aims to reduce travel time and traffic congestion between the north-eastern and northern parts of the national capital.

The bridge, built over the Yamuna River, is the first asymmetrical cable-stayed bridge in India.
