The collapse of a foot overbridge (FOB) outside the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) on Thursday was the second such incident in nine months in the city.
The deceased have been identified as Apoorva Prabhu (35), Ranjana Tambe (40) and Zahid Shiraj Khan (32).
The bridge connects CST station and has two landings - one outside Anjuman Islam school and the other at BT lane that heads towards the back of Azad Maidan police station and Cama hospital. Mr Fadnavis was speaking to reporters after visiting some of the injured at St Georges Hospital.
Fadnavis said the he has instructed the Mumbai police not to spare anyone responsible for the collapse of the foot overbridge.
The bridge, which was under fix according to multiple Indian media reports, gave way around 7.30 pm (1400 GMT) on Thursday as rush hour commuters made their way into Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus.
Surprisingly, as per the locals, the bridge was not in bad condition and still a part of the foot over bridge collapsed. Following the incident, traffic has been affected. Mumbai Police has also tweeted in this regard and has advised commuters to use alternate routes.
