Building collapse in New Delhi suburb kills at least three, more feared dead

A six-storey building collapsed into an adjacent construction site in Greater Noida near New Delhi killing at least three people, as rescuers searched for more people feared trapped in the rubble. The building that collapsed night had been constructed a few years ago and did not appear to have many occupants. Police said that three people were taken into custody in connection with the case. Reportedly, 50 people are feared trapped. Teams of India’s National Disaster Response Force, dog squad and excavators were involved in the night long rescue effort to clear the rubble.
Meanwhile, constant torrential downpour in parts of India led to rising water levels and created flood-like situations in India’s western Junagarh district’s rural areas. The National Disaster Response Force, which are pre-positioned in the flood-prone areas, was called for rescuing stranded villagers and cattles, who were later seen being evacuated on tobe rafts through roads flooded at waist deep water.
