Three killed, many feared trapped as two buildings collapse in Greater Noida

July 18:At least three bodies were recovered and three people have been taken to hospital after two buildings collapsed in Greater Noida's Shahberi village on Tuesday night.
Three persons have been arrested in connection with the incident in which several people are feared trapped under the rubble, police said on Wednesday.
Rescue operations that began on Tuesday night continued on Wednesday.
A six-storey building under construction collapsed on an adjacent building around 9.30 p.m., and that building too collapsed in the impact. The police have detained a builder and property dealer for questioning.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday night directed the police and administration departments to monitor and coordinate with the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) in the rescue operation.
Drills are being used to remove metal rods to reach those trapped under the debris. A dog squad has also been pressed into service.
"Four teams of the NDRF and a dog squad are at the spot," said Gautam Budh Nagar District Magistrate B.N. Singh.
"Exact casualties are yet to be ascertained as the rescue operation is on," regional chief fire officer Arun Kumar Singh said.
A local said that at least 40 persons might be trapped in the debris and at least 12 families had shifted to one of the building. Initial information suggests that the buildings were illegally constructed right under the nose of district administration and Greater Noida authority. Agencies
