At least two persons were killed and 40 injured when the roof of an under-construction shelter house collapsed in North-West Delhi on Wednesday evening, police said.

Five to six persons were still feared to be trapped under the debris, they said.

The roof of a Dharamsala, being constructed close to a temple in Samaypur Badli, came crashing down at 5:15 pm trapping labourers and some devotees visiting the temple, they said.

Forty people were extricated from under the debris and admitted to hospitals, some in unconscious state, they added.
