INDIA: Building collapse, 6 killed, 10 injured and many feared trapped

At least six persons were killed and 10 others injured after a four-storey building housing 20 families collapsed in Thakurli in the district.

The building ‘Matruchaya’, built 35 years ago, collapsed last night at Cholve village, following which rescue operations were launched by the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), fire brigade officials and civic authorities said today.

However, the operations have been hampered due to continuous rains, District Disaster Management Control Room in-charge Jaideep Visave told PTI.

At the time of collapse, 20 families were inside the building. Santosh Kadam of Regional Disaster Management Cell (RDMC) said that some more occupants could be still trapped beneath the debris.

District Guardian Minister Ekanth Shinde, Kalyan MP Srikanth Shinde, Collector Ashwini Joshi and other top officials are monitoring the rescue and relief work.
