DINDIGUL: A bridge at Ellapatti village and three huts at Anjukuzhipatti village collapsed as heavy rain lashed the district on Thursday.

The main drinking water pipeline was damaged.

The bridge was constructed across the Sangiliyan temple stream in 2004. Indiscriminate sand mining had weakened it dam and led to the collapse, alleged local residents.
