8 Killed In Rain Related Incidents In Maharashtra

At least 15 people lost lives on Saturday morning when a 60-feet tall apartment wall collapsed upon a slum area in Pune's Kondhwa area. Mostly were labourers from Bihar and Bengal.

"Extremely saddened to know about the loss of lives in the Kondhwa, Pune wall collapse incident".

Fire department personnel, along with a National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) team, reached the spot and managed to rescue three people trapped under debris.

Rescue attempts are continuing to try and save those feared to still be under the rubble, the fire brigade official said.

The tragedy comes in the backdrop of the city reeling under the onslaught of relentless showers in the past 48 hours.

Pune received over 73.1 millimetres of rain in the last 24 hours, taking the rainfall in the city so far this month to its second highest level since 2010.

Depending on your behavior, it can be determined whether or not you are using exam dumps and if so, penalties will be imposed. As you can see the retake policy is a bit lenient, but it is still wise to make sure that you pass at the first attempt.

The compound wall collapsed around 1.45 am Friday night in the Kondhawa area, an official said.

Every June-September monsoon season, India experiences fatal incidents of building and wall collapses as rainfall weakens the foundation of poorly-built structures. My deepest condolences to the families and praying for a speedy recovery of the injured. Maharashtra chief minister?Devendra Fadnavis in a tweet said he has directed Pune collector to carry out an in-depth inquiry. The two injured, Ajay Kumar Dilip Sharma, 19, and Pooja Rajesh Sharma, 6, were admitted to Pune's Sassoon Hospital. "Once the post mortem are completed we will send the bodies via flights to Patna". They are stable, said an on-duty medical officer.

By Saturday afternoon, the police filed a first information report (FIR) against 15 persons, including the developer, site engineer and contractor of both sites (Alcon Stylus and the under-construction building), listing their offence as culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

The incident took place between 1:30am and 1:45am at Kondhwa and the victims were labourers and their family members, a majority of them from Bihar, who were living in makeshift shelters at the under-construction residential project where deep excavation work was underway.

Mayor Mukta Tilak said an investigation would be conducted.
