Bengaluru: Four people were killed and seven injured after a building which was under construction collapsed in Bengaluru's Pulikeshi Nagar on Wednesday morning.

State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF) rushed to the site to begin rescue operation. NDRF, fire services and civil defence rescue teams also joined soon after.

One of the deceased has been identified as Sambu Kumar, a native of Bihar.

The injured are receiving treatment at the Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospitals.

Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) mayor Gangambika Mallikarjun said that the building collapsed because an extra floor had been built, violating the rules. "I have instructed officials to take strict action and to demolish such buildings," she added.

The building adjoining the one that collapsed has also been damaged.
