Pune, Oct 31 (IBNS) A multi-storied building collapsed in Pune's suburban region of Narhe-Ambegaon on Friday.

According to reports, one person was killed in the tragedy.

"In a ghastly replay of the 2013 Thane building collapse tragedy, a newly constructed six-storey building collapsed in Pune’s suburban region of Narhe-Ambegaon early Friday morning, killing a 28-year-old youth who was trapped under the debris," The Hindu reported.

Eight other families which resided in the building escaped before the structure collapsed.

The deceased person was identified as Sandeep Mohite.

National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and fire brigade authorities recovered his body from the debris.

“The structure began crumbling between 3:05 a.m. and was reduced to rubble by 3:30 a.m. Apart from one person, the thirty-odd residents made it to safety. We are studying the building layout. Prima facie, the building appears to be a case of unauthorized construction,” said Additional Commissioner of Police Chandrashekhar Daithankar, speaking to The Hindu.
