Meanwhile, authorities on May 18 said a wall collapse at a salt packing plant in western India left at least 12 workers dead and 13 injured.
The factory is located in Morbi district, 215 km west of Gandhinagar, the capital of the state of Gujarat.
According to the news agency AP, the injuries of 13 workers were mainly broken bones and not life-threatening. The rescue work is almost over. Authorities are investigating the cause of the wall collapse.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered his condolences and wished the injured a speedy recovery.
Building collapses are common in India because many buildings are built with substandard materials. A building collapse in 2013 killed at least 72 people in Mumbai, India’s financial and entertainment hub.
