On the 15th of July, a building located near the Rama temple in Cherukupally Colony of Qutbullapur division collapsed while undergoing repairs for termite damage and dilapidated doors. The G Plus Two building had been recently sold and bought by a new owner just 15 days prior to the incident.
During the five-day repair process, workers felt vibrations inside the building and observed beetle activity, causing them to flee for safety. Later on, the building collapsed suddenly, fortunately without any occupants inside.
Upon inquiry, locals reported that the building was quite old and did not have proper pillars and beams. It was already in a state of disrepair, which could have contributed to the collapse. The collapse caused debris to fall on two adjacent buildings, resulting in some damage to their structures.
One person, Tanabai, was present at the scene when debris fell on her leg. She was taken to Haritha Hospital in Chintal for treatment.
This incident highlights the importance of proper maintenance and regular inspections of old buildings to prevent such unfortunate incidents from occurring.
