A 35-year-old labourer lost his life as the stairs of a building collapsed in Mohalla Tajgunj on Thursday. Another labourer had a narrow escape during the incident.
Reportedly, Anil was dismantling the house when the incident happened. He was a resident of Samrala Chowk and was working for Arjun Kumar, the owner of the house who wanted to reconstruct it.
Anil was dismantling the same stairs when suddenly the whole structure collapsed and he fell on the ground. He died on the spot.
Assistant Sub-Inspector Baldev Raj said that it was an accident. He added that the victim’s family was yet to record its statement.
