  • The collapsed building in Indore

A four-story rickety hotel building collapsed in central India, killing at least 10 people and injuring three, police said Sunday.

Eyewitness accounts claimed that the dilapidated structure came crashing down after a speeding auto hit the building, according to News18.

The building, which hosts a hotel and lodge, collapsed around 9:20 p.m., following which police personnel were deployed for rescue operations.

Rescue operation is presently underway to bring out the ones who are feared to be trapped.

The hotel was located in the posh Sarweta bus stand area. "But its owner had tried to make it look spic and span by keeping it well painted and decorated from outside". Soon after the collision, the building collapsed, leaving ten dead and three critically injured.

The incident took place last night after a speeding auto rammed into the building in Indore city.


"Till now, seven people have been rescued from the debris".

The civic body was trying to find out as to how much illegal construction had been done in the premises by its owner, said Mr Singh.

While the building was old, the reason for its collapse was not immediately known, Kirade said.

Senior officials and public representatives, including mayor Malini Gaur, BJP MLA Usha Thakur, divisional commissioner Sanjay Dube, the district collector Nishant Warwade, the DIG Harinarayan Chari Mishra and municipal commissioner Manish Singh visited the spot, reported the Quint. The CCTV footage, which is of a few seconds, purportedly shows the building collapsing and some two and four-wheel vehicles getting trapped under the rubble.

"The deceased include two women".
