Eight injured people have been rescued, Ghaziabad Chief Medical Officer Dr NK Gupta said. Three were taken to GTB Hospital in Delhi, and the others are in hospital in Ghaziabad. A team of the National Disaster Response Force is trying to find others feared trapped in the rubble.
Police have filed a case against four people based on a complaint by an engineer of the Ghaziabad Development Authority. The five-storey illegally constructed building was due for demolition since December 2017.
“The FIR has been lodged against the persons who were getting the building constructed and also the land owner,” said Senior Superintendent of Police Vaibhav Krishna.
Meanwhile, the roof of a house collapsed in Harsh Vihar near Dwarka in Delhi early on Monday. Two people were killed and three were injured, ANI reported.
