Death toll in Bhiwandi building crash rises to eight

Safia M Ansari (5) and Sagar S Gadal (19), who were severely injured in the incident, died today while undergoing treatment, police said, adding the owner of the building Nasir Sayeed has been arrested.

Six women had died and at least twenty persons were injured after a four-storey building had collapsed yesterday. The building, which stood at Gautam Compound Navi Basti, reportedly housed nearly a hundred families. It was originally a two storey building and two floors, possibly illegally, were added on to it later.

The other injured are undergoing treatment at Thane civil hospital and MGM hospital in Bhiwandi, police said. Further investigations are on.
