Dindori (Madhya Pradesh): A labourer was killed and two others were injured after a two-storey under-construction house collapsed in Madhya Pradesh's Dindori district on Monday, a police official said.

The incident took place in Matta village in the wee hours and police got information about it at around 5 am, Gadasarai police station in-charge Durga Prasad told reporters.

The victims were sleeping in the under-construction house at the time of the incident, the official said.

The structure collapsed possibly due to rains in the area, a local resident said.

"After receiving information, police rushed to the spot. Three labourers who were trapped under the debris were rescued," he said.

Police had to use cutters to clear the debris and rescue those trapped under a slab of the under-construction house, belonging to one Ayodhya Prasad Rai, the official said.

The three labourers were rushed to a hospital, he said, adding that one of them died.

The deceased was identified as Chotu Mordwaj (30), the official said.

A case was registered and further probe was underway into the incident, the police added.
