New Delhi: A four-storey building collapsed in north Delhi’s Sabzi Mandi area near Malka Ganj on Monday afternoon, triggering panic among local residents. According to the police, a person trapped under the debris was rescued and immediately rushed to a nearby hospital.



Few more people are believed to be trapped inside the building’s debris. ”So far, no casualties have been reported due to the incident. The rescue operations are still underway. The Delhi Fire Service received a call about the incident at 11.50 AM about the building collapse, said Atul Garg, the director of DFS. 

Total seven fire tenders were rushed to the spot after that, he added.

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal informed that he is ”closely monitoring the situation.”



“The incident of building collapse in Sabzi Mandi area is very sad. The administration is engaged in relief and rescue work. Through the district administration, I am myself monitoring the situation,” he tweeted in Hindi. 

Delhi Fire Service officials said that they were yet to ascertain what exactly caused the building collapse; however, they were of the view that heavy rainfall for the last few days in the city could have weakened the structure of the building.

The national capital has been witnessing heavy rainfall for the last few days, due to which several areas were reported waterlogged.
