Five people were injured when a four-storey under-construction building collapsed in North Delhi’s Azad market area. Police said that the building collapsed due to overload. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), in a statement, said that the use of substandard materials during construction was the reason behind the building’s collapse.
The Building Department of the MCD sanctioned the building plan of property number 749, Sheesh Mahal Azad Market Delhi.
The permission was granted for the construction of the ground floor, first floor, second floor and third floor. At the time of inspection, no deviation or excess coverage was noticed at the site.
Prima facie, according to information gathered at the site, it was found that substandard material was used for construction, and there was a heavy load of construction material on the building, which caused its collapse.
However, the exact cause can be ascertained only after the removal of the huge amount of debris at the site, said the MCD.
The MCD has deployed its resources from various departments at the collapsed site to remove the debris. The MCD has deployed 10 Tata Ace trucks and labourers from the maintenance department for the removal of debris. As of now, no casualties have been reported.
