One girl was killed and 18 others were injured when a portion of a roof of a private girls college collapsed in Rajasthan's Bharatpur city on Saturday.
"The accident occurred around 9.30 am when Videh College was in session. At least 19 girls were trapped under the debris," a senior district administration official said.
"One girl was found dead while 18 others, three of whom are critical, were injured in the incident," said Krishna Kunal, district collector of Bharatpur.
Bharatpur city is over 170 km from Jaipur.
Kunal said the critically injured were referred to Jaipur's Sawai Man Singh Hospital while others were admitted to a nearby government hospital.
