The flyover has been closed for the next three days as the investigations continue. 

This led to a massive traffic snarl due to a bottleneck that occurred from Shah Ghouse, Khajaguda, all the way up to Gachibowli, BioDiversity Junction and Mindspace junction. The incident occurred at 1 pm, however, commuters had to deal with snail-pace traffic until 5 pm.
