    Bengaluru building collapse: 3 dead, many feared trapped under debris

    The building collapse triggered by a cylinder blast took place on Monday morning bringing down parts of four old buildings in Ejipura locality of Bengaluru. While rescue and clearance operations are currently underway officials confirmed the death of seven people. Many are feared trapped under the debris.

    The deceased have been identified as 46-year-old Ravichandar, 68-year-old Kalavati, 35-year-old Malashri, 18-year-old Prasad, 52-year-old Pavan Kalyan, Ashwini and Sharavana. Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy visited the spot to take stock of the situation. Narrow roads leading to the collapse site posed challenges to the rescue operations.

    Rescue personnel pulled out three people from under the debris and rushed them to nearby hospitals. The blast is said to have occurred on the ground floor and ripped through the first and second floors of one building. Earthmovers have been brought in to clear debris at the earliest even as fire and emergency service personnel are looking for more people suspected to be trapped.
