Thane: The death toll in the garment factory building collapse in Thane has gone up to two while 26 people have been injured. The 2-storeyed building in Bhiwandi collapsed late on Wednesday night.
Close to 15 people have been rescued so far and seven people still trapped in the debris. Locals say the building housed a garment factory.
Officials say that prima facie it appears that the building may have collapsed due to construction on the first floor. This is the second building collapse in Bhiwandi and the third across Thane in less than three weeks.
