Five labourers and a child were injured when a five-storey building collapsed in Ghaziabad on Sunday when workers were giving finishing touches to it.
The incident occurred at 3.30 p.m. in Akash Nagar, a residential colony, police said.
When Senior Superintendent of Police Vaibhav Krishna reached the spot, the locals said that the building was a shelter for labourers. This is a developing story and more details are awaited.
“Till now five labourers and a five-year-old child have been rescued,” said Krishna.
In a similar incident last week, at least one person was killed and three others injured when an under construction building collapsed at Sector 63 in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The incident was marked as the second such incident in the same week.
On July 17, two under-construction buildings in Greater Noida’s Shah Beri village collapsed killing 9 people. According to eye-witnesses, the incident occurred after a six-storey under-construction building collapsed and fell on another building.
