Meanwhile, the BBMP has opened a relief centre for 150 residents who were affected by the building that has tilted in Hebbal-Kempapura's G Ramaiah Layout yesterday.

On Wednesday, the five-year-old building tilted due to suspected leakage of water from the storage tank in the basement, which weakened the foundation of the construction.

According to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike officials, the building was constructed in 2015, which a businessman had bought and rented out a large portion of it to the paying guests.

The officials are verifying whether the building had all the valid permissions such as plan approval, Khata approval and so on, the sources said.
