In a tragic incident, at least 7 people were killed and several others feared trapped after a part of a residential building in Bengaluru's Ejipura collapsed earlier today. Bengaluru development minister KJ George also announced that the state government will adopt the girl whose parents died in the collapse. Three fire-fighters were also injured when a wall caved in on them while they were clearing the debris to pull out those trapped, the police said, adding that they had been shifted to a nearby hospital.

Initially it was reported that buildings collapsed due to cylinder blast.

Following the incident, the administration rushed police and firefighters to the spot to carry out rescue work.

The girl's parents had died in the collapse. The three-storey building, which is more than 30 years old collapsed due to the explosion. In the latest development on the Ejipura building collapse in Bengaluru, the Bengaluru Development Minister has chose to adopt the baby girl who lost her parent in the unfortunate incident. Six bodies, including that of two women, have been recovered.

The deceased are identified as Saravana (31), his wife Ashwini (27), who was eight months pregnant, Kalavathi (68) and Ravichandran (45).

The injured, rescued from the rubble, were admitted to hospitals.

Gunesh had rented the building to four families, he added. "It is only after an investigation is conducted that we can tell if the cylinder explosion caused the building to collapse", the minister said.
