It was the second such collapse around Mumbai in less than ten days. Torrential rains that lash the city during the monsoon often destabilize older or badly constructed structures and this has led to multiple collapses over the years.

“We don’t know exactly how many, but with the input provided by neighbors, we estimate more than 30 could be trapped,” said the official, adding that rescue operations were hampered by narrow lanes in the area.

Devendra Fadnavis, chief minister of Maharashtra state in western India, said that based on initial information around 15 families were living in the building which he said dated back 100 years.

He said the focus was on rescue efforts, but that the government would open an investigation. Police said at least seven injured people had been taken to hospital.
