A five-storey building located on National Highway 205 in Ghandal village near Shimla collapsed on Saturday. After the building collapsed, the road leading to a government college also got damaged, leading to disruption in traffic movement.
The incident took place around 12 pm.
Cracks had developed on the road next to the building after excavation work was done in Dhami 16 Mile. A video showed how the building came crumbling down.
The building was located near the Degree College in Dhami, which had also developed cracks.
No loss of life was reported in the incident as the law college students who were residing in the five-storey building were asked to vacate a week ago to prevent any potential harm.
Besides, the electric connections of the building were disconnected, news agency PTI reported.
