Ahmedabad: In the second such incident in a fortnight, a man died here on Friday when a part of a dilapidated three-story building collapsed.

The residential building in Mandvi Ni Pol area, which was vacant for some time, today partially collapsed following yesterday's heavy downpour, said Additional Chief Fire Officer Rajesh Bhatt.

"Mukesh Chavda (36), who was passing by when the building collapsed, was trapped under the debris and died," he said.

A few two-wheelers were damaged.
