Bengaluru: At least two people suffered minor injuries as part of a wall collapsed on the rear side of Mantri Mall in Bengaluru on Monday afternoon.
The injured were rushed to a nearby hospital for first-aid.
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials received a call at 3 pm stating that a portion of a wall had come down on the second floor of the mall.
The mall was immediately evacuated and all the shops were shut inside the mall. The BBMP officials and Bangalore police swung into action to take stock of the situation.
