New Delhi:

In another shocking incident, the roof of a building collapsed in Harsh Vihar near Dwarka, New Delhi on Monday killing 2 people and injuring three. 

The deceased have been indentified as Sunil and his wife Rachna as they were declared brought dead by doctors at Deen Dayal Upadhyaya hospital, as per reports.

The three injured children are undergoing treatment at the hospital.

Vaibhav, the eldest of the siblings injured in the collapse, told police that his father owned the house and he was born there. Due to leakage of water, the iron rods which gave support to the roof had become weak. A layer of bricks was placed on the roof to stop the leakage. However, the iron rods could not take the load of the roof, leading to the collapse, an official said.

The bodies of the deceased have been sent for a post-mortem.

The incident comes within a day after Ghaziabad building collapse and a week of a twin-building collapse in Shahberi village of Greater Noida, that claimed nine lives. 

Recently, there have been many incidents of building collapse, especially in the Delhi/NCR region.
