1 killed, 5 hurt in Bandra building collapse


A 28-year-old youth was killed and five others injured when a building collapsed in the Kherwadi area of Bandra East on Monday, officials said.

At around 2.30 a.m., the five-storey structure Razzak Chawl crashed on an adjoining two-storey tenement, trapping many families as they slept.

The victim was identified as Riyaz Ahmad. The five injured have been rushed to nearby hospitals for treatment, as the search continues for more victims.
