Mumbai building crash: SP holds MHADA, SBUT responsible

LIVE — Mumbai building collapse: At least 3 dead 9 injured in Bhendi Bazar; rescue operation underway

A 90-member team of the National Disaster Response Force is also involved in the operations. "Ambulances are also ready to take the victims to the hospital", the fire control room official said.

A total of 29 people have been rescued so far, and five of them are in a critical condition in hospital. Waterproofing in such old buildings is non-existent, which adds to the problem. The building was located in the Bhendi Bazaar area in the south of the Indian coastal city.

According to the latest report, 16 people died out of 30 who were evacuated from the debris of the collapsed residential building. "He used to go to school in that building", she said, tearfully pointing at the rubble.

Bhendi Bazaar, a scruffy colonial-era market, is one of Mumbai's most historic districts and officials said the collapsed building was 117 years old.

It was the most recent deadly housing collapse to strike the teeming metropolis - shining a spotlight on poor construction standards in the Asian country - and came after flooding in the city killed 10 people.

"Collapse of a building in Mumbai is saddening". It is not known whether the building was on the list of risky structures under the MCGM limits.

His ability to do so, however, would be more limited if Trump ended DACA on his own. "His campaign promise was solid". What to do about the so-called Dreamers has been actively debated within the White House and Trump administration.

Local media reported that a larger tragedy was averted as the building housed a playschool, which was closed at the time of the collapse.

Additional chief secretary has been asked to conduct a probe to find out what led to this unfortunate incident, the chief minister said.

The SBUT, run by the Bohra community, was granted the rights to redevelop a cluster of old buildings in the area, including the collapsed building.

He said eight or nine families were thought to have been living in the building. Last month, another four-story building toppled in the city's suburb of Ghatkopar, killing 17.

Just two days after heavy rains lashed Mumbai, a three-storeyed building collapsed in the Dongri area on Thursday. More than a dozen others were missing and feared trapped beneath a huge mound of mud, broken concrete slabs and twisted steel girders. "But 10-20% share of profit should be given to the landlord or owner of the building so that it will not be injustice to him", said Waikar.
