Meanwhile, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) officials had previously told media publications that the picture was from Karnataka-Maharashtra border. But soon, the Maharashtra State Highway police gave a clarification and rectified the information on Tuesday evening.

This is not the first incident of a crack developing on a highway as earlier, due to heavy rainfall, a patch of the road at the Mumbai-Pune Expressway near Adoshi tunnel had sunk by at least five inches.

In the meantime, all buses bound for Mumbai, Kolhapur, and Shirdi from Karnataka have been stopped, while the road between Ankola and Yellapur in Uttara Kannada district is also blocked due to inundation.
