With the recovery of two more dead bodies under the debris, the death toll in the poultry farm building collapse reached four on Monday. The farm had collapsed in the Mohalla area of Ballabgarh on Sunday evening.
The police have registered a case under different sections of the IPC against the Noida-based owner of the farm, YP Khullar, and said he will be arrested soon.
The two bodies recovered on Monday have been identified as those of Chanderpal, of Mohalla village, and Somnath of Jharkhand.
The rescue work continued till Monday evening. The rescuers had to deal with thousands of chickens that had been buried alive when the farm collapsed. They were buried to avoid the spread of disease.
Two bodies had been fished out of the debris on Sunday evening itself. The deceased were identified as Gange and Suleman. Apart from them, nearly six labourers were also injured in the building collapse. Senior civil and police officers visited the spot once again in Monday. Police are also investigating whether the poultry farm was being run illegally. “It seems the building collapsed due to sub-standard material used in its construction,” said Balraj Singh, deputy commissioner of Faridabad, had said on Sunday.
