Four people died and at least two were injured on Saturday morning after a portion of a two-storey house was collapsed in West Delhi, reports Hindustan Times.
According to the police, the house was being used as a factory for motor winding.
Subodh Kumar Goswami, additional deputy commissioner of police (West) confirmed the four deaths.
The police received a call around 10am about the roof collapse, he said.
"Six men were inside the factory when the incident happened. They were rescued by the police, ambulance and Delhi disaster management authority officials. All six were sent to the nearby hospitals. Four of them were declared dead by the doctors after the examination. The other two are out of danger," he added.
Delhi Fire Services (DFS) chief Atul Garg said that the fire control room received a call about the housing collapse in RZ-block in Vishnu Garden. Four fire tenders along with the rescue teams were dispatched.
"Of the six people who were rescued, one was admitted to Guru Govind hospital while the others were referred to Deen Dayal Memorial hospital. It's a 60 square yard house, which was also being used for some manufacturing unit," said Garg.
Police said that the factory building belongs to one Mahendra Pal, a resident of Uttam Nagar. The local sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) has been informed for further legal proceedings, said Goswami.
