Four persons have been killed and many others are critically injured after a newly-constructed building collapsed in Nanakramguda – an IT suburb in Hyderabad on Thursday evening.  While 12 people including a woman and a child were pulled out from the debris, according to the Cyberabad Police Commissioner Sandeep Shandilya, 15 to 20 people could be trapped under the rubble.

As per the reports, 10 families were inside the building when it collapsed including tile workers and plumbers and building’s watchman. A team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is helping the police in rescue operations.

As per a report in NDTV, deputy commissioner of Police Vishwa Prasad said violation of rules has been noticed in the construction of the building.

“The building was poorly constructed and flouted norms in the materials used, hence the collapse,” said Bontha Ram Mohan, Mayor of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.

Noted ministers including Telangana Home Minister N Narsimha Reddy, Excise Minister Padma Rao and Cyberabad Police Chief had also rushed to the accident spot.

Different figures were being given on the number of persons trapped under the debris. “Nobody is saying exactly,” said Telangana Home minister N Narshimha Reddy.

State Excise Minister T Padma Rao said, “Unless the slabs are removed, we cannot say responsibly. Six slabs have fallen on one another. Neither I nor you can say… It would be known only after the slabs are removed, how many workers are there.”

“Some say six persons have died and some say seven died. Nobody knows how many were there and how many killed, but the truth would come out only after the slabs are lifted,” he added.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao expressed anguish on the collapse and directed ministers from the city to take care of the rescue and relief operation.
