Collapse Of Building In Mumbai Is Anguishing: PM Modi

Mumbai: More than 10 people have lost their lives in in the Kesarbhai building collapse in Dongri.

Kesarbai building collapsed at around 11:40 am in the morning and was located in Tandel Street of Dongri. The building was more than a century old and despite its dilapidated condition, 10 families lived.

Congress leader Milind Deora on Tuesday termed the building collapse as “unfortunate” and requested the citizens to question the government why such incidents happen year after year.

PM Narendra Modi’s statement: “The collapse of a building in the hill city of Mumbai is very tragic, my condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives, I hope the injured will be cured soon, the Maharashtra government, NDRF and local officials will take rescue work is working.”

“The collapse of a building in Dongri, Mumbai is very tragic. My condolences with the bereaved families and prayers for early recovery of those injured. Rescue operations are in full swing. The state government, NDRF and local authorities are doing their best to assist people in need,” Home Minister Amit Shah tweeted saying.

Fire tenders, five teams of NDRF and BMC Disaster Management Cell teams were immediately sent to the spot and rescue operations are in progress. It is proving hard to save people because the streets are narrow.

ANI reported that the 11 Ismail Habib building, situated in front of the ‘Kesarbai’ building, is also being evacuated as it was seen shaking.

Since the building was located in a narrow lane in a congested area, firefighters could not send earth-moving machines to the spot.

A fire official told AP that they have pulled out three people and rushed them to a hospital. He didn’t know whether they were dead or alive.
