Bangalore: Six labourers were injured and
some others feared trapped when part of an under construction
building caved in near here Tuesday, police said.

Building authorities claimed that none was trapped under
the debris but local residents suspect some labourers to be
trapped, sources said.

Though the incident occurred at 3 am, building
authorities did not bother to alert police and started
clearing the debris themselves. However, some residents
alerted police who rushed to the spot, sources said.

The injured, who hail from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, have
been admitted to hospital and fire brigade personnel are
clearing the debris.

Bangalore city corporation councillor Nandini Shrinivas,
who visited the spot, said "the actual picture will be known
only after the debris is cleared".
