Several labourers are feared trapped in the debris of an under-construction building whose roof collapsed Sunday, an official said. Sadar Sub Divisional Magistrate Ramji Mishra said, “The roof of an under-construction building of a private inter-college collapsed Sunday when over a dozen labourers were working in it. As a result, many labourers have been trapped in the debris.”

No death has been reported so far, he said. “Nearly a dozen labourers were evacuated from the debris, in which we could still see two to three labourers trapped.
