New Delhi: Six of a family, including
three women, were killed when a two-storeyed building they
were staying in collapsed in the capital in the wee hours
An elderly woman, her three sons and two
daughter-in-laws were killed in the incident when the building
at Brahmapuri near Usmanpur collapsed at 4.25 a.m, fire
brigade officials said.
The three men were identified as Nabees, Nadir and
Azim while one woman has been identified as Ayesha. The bodies
of all the victims were recovered by rescue operators during
the clearance of debris.
Neighbours said they had warned the family to move out
of the building after rains on Monday weakened the structure.
The family had apparently told the neighbours that they will
shift from the building this morning.
