After cracks were seen in the ‘illegal” building, the municipal agency had evacuated 22 families on Friday night. However, some people went back into the building to collect their belongings. That was when it collapsed, trapping them, officials said.

Commissioner of Bhiwandi-Nizampur Municipal Corporation, Ashok Rankhamb said, “We had received a message that column of the building might dismantle. Our emergency team reached here and after examination, they found that the building might collapse.”

He further added, “As soon as we came to know about the plaster collapse and cracks developing in the building, we evacuated all the families safely. However, some residents forcefully went inside to remove their belongings and the building collapse. The building does not have a name. We will file an FIR against the builder for negligence.”

At least 15 people are still feared trapped in the debris. Rescuers of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) are at the site and looking for survivors amid the concrete debris of the building that was built eight years ago.

Two fire officials were also injured in the incident.
