Five persons were killed and six others injured when a four-storey building collapsed this morning in suburban Dahisar here,police said. The building,located in market area of Dahisar (East),was vacated two years ago by BMC officials but local vegetable vendors used to take night shelter in the structure sometimes.

The building,which was constructed more than 30 years ago could not get into re-development as the conveyance deed was not done by the builder,flat owners told local MP Sanjay Nirupam,who visited the spot after the mishap.

Nirupam assured the flat owners that he would get the deemed conveyance of the building done. The six injured have been admitted to Bhagwati hospital for treatment,police added.
