The State Disaster Response Force was pressed into the rescue operations, along with the police personnel. The owner of the building is identified as Ahmed, a Kerala based man. The people who were nearby started rescuing the labourers, while informing the rescue team.

The building was under construction for over six years and was abandoned after the construction stopped two years ago.

All the people trapped inside are construction workers, Raj said. Just last week, two buildings - one in Yeshwanthpur and another in Jayanagar - had dangerously tilted to one side. That time, it was the building of extra floors than the approved plan which caused the mishap.

At least three people died and seven others were injured after a five-storey under-construction building collapsed on Thursday in Kasavanahalli in Bengaluru.
