NEW DELHI/BENGALURU Oct 5 A five-storey
building in India's technology hub of Bengaluru collapsed on
Wednesday but no casualties have been reported so far even as
attempts to rescue those trapped under the rubble continue, a
police inspector said.
The building, that was under construction, is situated in
the city's Bellandur neighbourhood which is home to many upscale
apartment blocks and offices of technology companies.
The area, which surrounds a lake of the same name, has seen
a construction boom in recent years.
Four people have been pulled out from under the debris and
rescue attempts by the fire brigade are ongoing, the inspector
said, adding that the police is yet to ascertain how many people
are still trapped.
