Locals said Jayed Ali, lived on the 1st floor in a rented house with his son Babla at Patuatali. When Jayed Ali's brother went to the building he sees it collapsed. From morning, Jayed Ali and his son Babla's Mobile Phone is switched off. They fear that Father and Son could be buried under the debris.

Visiting the site our correspondent said the building is so old and its rope was built with Lime, soil and sugarcane. No rode was used to build the building. The building was collapsed due to heavy rain.
