A 7-storey residential building collapsed in Narhe Ambegaon in Pune. Eight families were residing in the building which is close to the Mumbai-Pune highway.
Three people including a child are likely to be trapped in the debris. Rescue operations are on. Fire brigade, ambulances and police teams are at the spot.
The builder has been detained. The building was constructed a year ago.
Residents said they heard a loud rumble which they mistook for an earthquake and fled the building.
