New Delhi: The Municipal Corporation of
Delhi (MCD) on Tuesday ordered a probe into the collapse of a
four-storeyed under-construction building in an unauthorised
colony in north-west Delhi, in which two persons were killed.

Municipal Commissioner KS Mehra asked the Deputy
Commissioner of Najafgarh Zone to examine all aspects of the
issue and submit a report within three days.

"Further action will subsequently be taken," an MCD
official said.

Two persons were killed and a woman was injured when
the building collapsed in Chander Vihar area at around 4:20
PM.

Senior MCD officials visited the spot. Excavators,
bulldozers, trucks, equipment and implements have also been
sent, the official said adding, "the primary focus of MCD
right now is on the removal of debris".

The MCD drew criticism over rampant growth of
unauthorised constructions in the city after a building with
illegal floors collapsed in east delhi in November last year,
kiling 71 people. Since then, the civic body has undertaken
regular drives to demolish illegal structures across the
capital.
