A four-storey building has collapsed in Rajshahi city.
The incident took place at around 3 pm on Sunday at the Koyardara Christian Para area in the city.
However, no casualties were reported in the incident. After the accident, the fire brigade started the rescue operation there.
Confirming the incident, the senior station officer of Rajshahi Sadar Fire Station Abdur Rauf said the building was constructed with low-quality construction materials by building owner Ataruzzaman Bablu. “The building collapsed due to substandard construction materials”.
He added that the building had been abandoned for a long time. The locals used the ground floor as a garage. Even today there were three private cars and two vans parked there - those trapped under the rubble. The two adjoining buildings were slightly damaged when the building collapsed. However, no casualties were reported.
