The Hush Post: An under-construction five-storey building collapsed killing one person and injuring five others. The building is situated in Akash Nagar of the Masuri police station in Ghaziabad.
The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) were immediately brought into action after the mishap and rescue and search operations are underway, according to the police.
“So far, we have pulled out one dead body and rescued one person trapped in the debris,” a senior NDRF official said.
In a tweet, the Ghaziabad police said that some labourers were rescued and admitted to a hospital for treatment immediately.
There was no report as yet if there were more people trapped in the collapsed structure though there is a likelihood of it being so.
The mishap comes within a week of a six-storey under-construction building collapsing on another five-storey building in Greater Noida and one more incident which took place in Pune just yesterday.
The twin-building collapse in Shahberi village Greater Noida had claimed nine lives, including that of a toddler and two women.
