A five-story residential building in the congested Bhendi Bazar area of south Mumbai collapsed on Thursday, killing at least ten people and injuring 15 others, officials said. About 30 others were feared trapped.

Fire brigade officials said some nine families lived in the dilapidated building. Some media reports said it also housed a play school but children had not arrived yet when the tragedy occurred. This could not be confirmed immediately.

The building, which also had six godowns on the ground floor, crumbled at around 8:30 am. It’s not clear if the heavy rains that inundated Mumbai this week had weakened the building, said to be some 50 years old.

What remained was a large mound of concrete rubble and steel rods encircled by other houses including what appeared to be a tall building. Rescue workers in hard hats clambered up the mound and hammered at concrete slabs with hammers to reach underneath. Cranes and bulldozers were also deployed to scoop up the debris. Residents helped with bare hands.

At least three people were pulled out alive.”The exact number of trapped people cannot be known immediately,” Manoj Sharma, a deputy commissioner of police, said. But fire brigade officials said about 30 others are believed to be under the rubble.

The Maharashtra government will conduct an inquiry into the Bhendi Bazaar building collapse in which at least seven people lost their lives, state minister Subhash Desai announced.

“Our priority is to pull out at the earliest those trapped under the rubble of the dilapidated building. Once the rescue work gets over, the government will conduct a probe to ascertain the factors behind the building collapse. Strict action will be taken against those found guilty,” the industries minister, who is also the guardian minister for Mumbai, told reporters.

A meeting would be held with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to chalk out an action plan to rehabilitate those living in dilapidated buildings.

“This particular building was already marked for redevelopment as it was dilapidated. A meeting will soon be held with the chief minister and an action plan will be prepared to rehabilitate those residing in such structures so that these incidents do not occur again,” Desai said.

The disaster management cell of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai received a call about the collapse at 8.40 am.

“We immediately rushed fire brigade personnel to the site to rescue the trapped people,” a senior MCGM official said.

A senior police official said seven persons, including an elderly couple, died and 13 others were injured in the incident. The injured were admitted to the J J Hospital. Their identity is being established.
