Reports inform that six labourers, including three women, were inside the factory when the incident took place. The structure, which was being used as a motor-winding factory, is located at the Vishnu Garden area in Khayala. According to reports, the building was made of iron girders and was overloaded with materials, because of which it caved in and these labourers got crushed when the roof collapsed.
