Indore building collapse: 10 dead, rescue operations on
10 people were killed and two others injured after a building collapsed in Madhya Pradesh's Indore on Saturday evening. Over two-dozen people were feared trapped in the debris of a four-storey hotel that collapsed near Sarwate Bus Stand in Indore.
The building is said to have collapsed after a car reportedly collided with a weight-bearing pillar on the front portion of the building.
The incident took place around 9.15 pm today (March 31).
Relief and rescue operations are underway in full swing.
The reason for the sudden collapse is still not known. Senior officials have reached the spot and are monitoring the situation. Injured have been shifted to a nearby hospital.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan has also condemned the incident. Taking to Twitter, he said that the government is looking in the matter. The incident happened almost one year after Mumbai when at least 33 people had lost their lives after a building collapsed in August 2017.
