Rescuers were searching in rubble after two buildings collapsed in India killing at least 16 people. Two of the workers died on the spot and another three succumbed to injuries later in a hospital, said police officer George Fernandes.
Fifteen injured workers are being treated in hospital, while six others were allowed to go home after medical attention last night, Mr Fernandes said.
Nearly 300 policemen and fire service workers worked overnight, scouring the debris for survivors. They used gas cutters, iron rods and shovels to reach those trapped in the rubble.
