WATCH VIDEO of a three-storey building collapsing like a pack of cards in Amritsar

The Hush Post: In a shocking incident, a three-storey residential building in Amritsar collapsed like a pack of cards literally.

According to a report aired by News 18 TV channel said that the three-storey building collapsed like a pack of cards on Thursday. The cause of the collapse was reportedly due to the digging work in the adjoining plot, the report said.

However, there was no report of loss of any human life in this incident.

A video clip on the YouTube shows the house falling like nine pins.

When contacted, Municipal Town Planner, Narinder Sharma told The Hushpost that their department has not received any complaint in this regard. He said that no loss of life or injury was reported in this incident as people had already vacated the building when it started developing cracks. He said that a report has been submitted to the Municipal Commissioner who is at present on leave.

Meanwhile, it is learned that the matter has been compromised between both sides. The building had collapsed due to the digging work for the construction of a gurdwara. And the digging work resulted in the erosion of the foundation of the building that collapsed.
