A four-storied building partially collapsed at an unauthorized colony in Safdarjung Enclave triggering fear of a domino effect on the adjoining buildings on Sunday.Even though there has been no casualty, police and corporation officials fear it might harm other buildings in Arjun Nagar. Occupants of the building had vacated the premises after the tremors of the recent earthquake in October led to serious damage to the structure.
Police, civil defense volunteers and South Delhi Municipal Corporation officials evacuated all the nearby buildings. Even the foundation of the building behind the collapsed one is completely damaged and the civic body officials issued a ‘dangerous building’ notice to its occupants.
