Bangalore: Five persons were killed and two others injured when a dilapidated house collapsed and brought down some other adjoining ramshackle residential units here Tuesday.

Bodies of the victims -- two labourers from Uttar Pradesh, a two-year-old child and two women -- were recovered from under the debris, police and fire officials said.

The injured were admitted to a nearby hospital.
The house located on a godown collapsed first and four others adjacent to the building, inhabited mostly by labourers, crumbled under its impact, the officials said.

A police official said the building`s walls were weak and the heavy downpour a few days ago had made it worse.

Police said a case had been registered against the building owner.

Five brigade personnel were engaged in rescue and relief work, they said.
