Nashik: Three persons, including a woman and a child, were killed on the spot and another was injured when an under construction 'welcome arch' of the local civic body collapsed on them today, police said.

The 'welcome arch' of Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC), which was being constructed at Soubhagya Nagar on Rashik- Devlali Camp road, fell on an auto rickshaw, killing three of its occupants and injuring the other, they said.

Mayor Naina Gholap-Walzade later told reporters that a compensation of Rs 1 lakh each to the families of the deceased will be given.

She also asked NMC Commissioner Bhaskar Sanap to initiate an inquiry into the mishap and file a criminal case against the contractor and civic officials concerned.
