NEW DELHI, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- At least two persons were injured and some others feared trapped under the debris of a 150-year-old residential building which collapsed in the Indian capital Wednesday, a senior police official said.
"The building collapsed like a pack of cards at Azad Maidan Market locality in the north of the national capital at 8 a.m. ( local time). While two injured persons have been rescued by fire brigade officials and rushed to a nearby hospital, search is on to bring out some others feared trapped under the debris," he said, on condition of anonymity.
A probe has been ordered into the incident, the official added.
Building collapses are common in India because of poor construction practices.
Last Friday, more than 61 people were killed in a similar building collapse in Mumbai.
