Three NDRF teams – two from Ghaziabad and another from New Delhi – were summoned to the village near Gurgaon’s sector 65. The local police and the fire department were also involved in the rescue operation. “Rescue teams are facing difficulty as they are removing concrete, iron grills and debris. There could be seven people, all labourers, feared trapped,” fire officer Isham Singh told PTI during the early hours of the operation.

The building collapsed when the labourers were laying the roof the building’s fourth floor, officials said. The police are on the lookout for the building owner, a resident of Ullawas village.
