Noida: Four people killed and half a dozen more were injured after temporary iron fixtures around an under-construction multi-storey private building collapsed in Sector 39 here on Sunday.

The incident occurred at the BPTP 'Capital City' in the morning when a tractor-trolley carrying sand reportedly hit the shuttering (temporary fixtures) bringing down six labourers who were working a few floors above the ground, police said.

"One man, who was driving the tractor, and three others working on the site died after the fixtures came crashing down on him, while six suffered injuries and are hospitalised," Amit Kumar Singh, SHO of the Sector 39 police station, under whose jurisdiction the building is located, said.

"The labourers were wearing the helmets but were working without safety harness," the SHO said, adding that no formal complaint was lodged with the police till the afternoon. Meanwhile, attempts to contact the BPTP, a private real estate company, did not yield any official response.
