The under construction building in Mishal Garhi in Dasna in Ghaziabad, many feared trapped. The labourers were working at the construction site when the incident took place.

Rescue operations are currently underway. A team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has also been called in for rescue and relief operations.

It was a five-storeyed building which was nearing completion. No one was living in this building yet.

Initial assessment by the authorities ssuggests that rain might have been the reason for the collapse of the building as the foundation might have been weak. However, officials said they could only confirm the reason of the mishap after a probe.

The incident comes on a day when authorities in Greater Noida ordered a building in Shah Beri village to be vacated after a crack developed on one of the pillars.

Officials are on their toes since earlier this week when a six-floor under-construction building crashed on a five-storeyed building in Shahberi village under Bisrakh police station. At least 10 people were killed in the building collapse. Use of poor quality building construction material and violation of safety norms were believed to be the main reasons behind the mishap.
