A two-year old government-constructed residential building collapsed in Madhya Pradesh's Maihar, killing two and trapping at least 25 in the rubble.
The three-storeyed building had been built by the government-run Housing Board in 2014. The building had 32 shops and 10 flats in which 12 families used to stay.
Maihar and several other areas in the state have been reeling under heavy rains for several days now.
The crumbling structure of the building that gave way because of the rains is a testimony to the inferior quality construction material that was used.
For now, rescue work is going on and State Disaster Response Forces have been summoned from Indore and Allahabad.
