Five killed in Mumbai building collapse
One of the deceased has been identified as Sudha Shridharan. She was 32 years old. The building was vacant but some people were living on the ground floor.

The building, called Shankar Lok, was given an eviction notice, citing dilapidated condition in 2007.
Only one family was staying on the ground floor after it had challenged the eviction and got a stay from the court.

The high court while allowing the two families to stay had said that they should live at their own risk and the BMC will not be responsible in case of an accident.

The building collapsed on a slum adjoining to it. The Kesarkar and the Jagtap family were living in the chawl on which the building collapsed. The BMC has issued a notice to the chawls also to vacate as the building was posing a danger to them. With the elections approaching the incident is attracting several leaders, Priya Dutt and Poonam Mahajan have visited the spot.
