NEW DELHI, Sept 21  — At least eight people are dead after a three-story building collapsed early Monday in Maharashtra state, according to report by Anadolu Agency (AA), citing National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) officials.

“Five teams of NDRF are working on the rescue operation since 5 AM IST (11:30 PM GMT) on Monday after the news of building collapse. Another 20 to 25 feared trapped,” tweeted NDRF director general Satya Pradhan.

The collapse occurred in the Bhiwandi area of Thane district in India’s financial capital Mumbai around 3:45 AM IST (GMT1015).
