Delhi Satya Niketan building collapse: the structure was being renovated when it caved-in, and those trapped were believed to be labourers.

Delhi's Satya Niketan witnessed a tragedy as a three-storey building collapsed on April 25, trapping multiple people. The building was being renovated when it caved-in, and those trapped were believed to be labourers.

The building was being converted into a paying guest (PG) accomodation. Fire Services said that they received a call around 1:24 pm, and the main challenge was getting vehicles to the spot as the building is in a congested area.

At least 4 people had been rescued by 4:30 pm. A senior fire official was quoted by PTI as saying that the building was not in a good enough condition to undergo renovation. National Disaster Response Force personnel were deployed at the spot to aid in rescue and relief.
