In the second such incident in three days, an under-construction building collapsed in New Delhi on Tuesday afternoon injuring four labourers including a minor boy.

The first floor of the under construction structure in Sector 16 of Prashant Vihar in North-West Delhi caved in at around 3:30 pm, police sources said.

Among the injured are two women, a man and a minor boy, they said, adding they were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
