One of the two labourers building a house in Kot Mit Singh area here was killed and the other was injured when the structure collapsed on Tuesday morning.


Rakesh Verma, 42, is the victim, and Rajesh is the man injured. Both were laying the roof when the accident occurred, which fire officer Shamaun Gill attributed to the labourers' negligence. The incident occurred a little before 11am.

"Fire fighters brought Rajesh out of the debris and moved him to hospital but it took time to get Rakesh Verma out," said Gill. The fire brigade handed over the victim's body to police.

Unplanned divider ruins charm of McLeod Road
