At least 25 shops in Waghoba Nagar in Thane district's Kalwa area in Maharashtra on Thursday developed cracks after a nearby road caved in, though there were no report of injuries to anyone, civic authorities said.


The cracks developed due to digging work being undertaken near the tracks by the railways to construct a protection wall, Thane Municipal Corporation's Regional Disaster Management Cell chief Avinash Sawant told PTI.
