According to police, the members of the family were asleep on a cot outside the house when the wall of their kuccha house collapsed on them. Hearing the commotion, villagers rushed to the spot and pulled them out.
According to police, around 15 students were sitting next to the school wall taking an examination. A construction vehicle was moving piles of sand which, police said, weakened the wall’s structure, thereby aiding its collapse.
While the administration report on the legalities of construction is pending, villagers have alleged irregularities. “The school is situated at a much lower platform .. The wall that collapsed was also made of sand. It was already weak,” alleged a resident.
