Kanpur building collapse tragedy: PM Modi condoles loss of lives
In one of the worst house collapse tragedies at Kanpur in the state of Uttar Pradesh, at least seven are reported to be dead and over 30 people are still feared to be trapped inside the rubble.

The death toll is likely to rise due the serious injuries to those who have been rescued and hospitalised and those still trapped in the collapsed building, who might not survive.

The under-construction building that collapsed is located in Jajmau locality of the city. The rescue and evacuation operations are on by the NDRF teams and the Army troops, it is reported.

The UP Police have registered an FIR against local political leader Mehtab Alam, who is reported to be the owner of the under-construction building. Another FIR has also been registered against a local contractor.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoling the loss of lives in the building collapse in Kanpur said, "My thoughts are with the families of those who lost their lives in the building collapse in Kanpur. May the injured recover quickly."
