At least two people were killed and nine were injured after a hoarding collapsed near the railway station in Pune’s Shivajinagar on Friday, media reports said.

According to ANI, the incident occurred when the work to cut the hoarding was underway. The banner fell on moving vehicles on a busy road, damaging nearly eight of them. Railway authorities have ordered an inquiry into the incident.
