At least 7 killed in building collapse in Bengaluru

Some 40 fire services personnel were carrying out the rescue operations the official added

In the latest development on the Ejipura building collapse in Bengaluru, the Bengaluru Development Minister has chose to adopt the baby girl who lost her parent in the unfortunate incident.

The deceased were identified as Maladri, 25, Pavan Kalyan, 19, Prasad, 18, Ravichandran, 46, and Kalavathi, 68, the official said.

Bengaluru Development Minister K.J. George has announced that a compensation of Rs. 5 lakh would be given to the kin of the deceased. They said a noise of the blast was heard and the 20-year-old building was reduced to rubble.

"Six people are dead, out of which five were residents of the building and one was a neighbour", said state Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy while visiting the site.

Personnel of the fire brigade and National Disaster Response Force recovered the bodies including that of two women.


Two children, who were rescued from the debris were out of danger, police said.

Following the incident, the administration rushed police and firefighters to the spot to carry out rescue work. "So it is unlikely that the buildings collapsed due to blast", Reddy later added.

"An LPG cylinder exploded on the ground floor of a two-storeyed building sometime between 6 and 7 a.m.in Ejipura area. They are safe. In the ground floor, members of two families might have been trapped", said the minister. Sources said that four houses collapsed following the explosion. Almost 40 fire services personnel are carrying out the rescue operations.

Authorities fear death toll would rise as some people are reported to be trapped under the debris.
