Mumbai, June 22, 2013: Piyush Co-opoerative Housing Society located in market area of on Yashwant Tawde Marg near Dahisar station in east, was vacated three years ago by BMC after part of it collapsed. Seven people were killed and six others were injured when a four-storey building collapsed on Saturday morning in Dahisar.

The building, Piyush Co-opoerative Housing Society located in market area of on Yashwant Tawde Marg near Dahisar station in east, was vacated three years ago by BMC after part of it collapsed.

BMC also had served notice under section 354 of MRTP Act and had evicted and sealed the building. However, local vegetable vendors used to take shelter in the structure sometimes.

While five people were brought out alive from the rubble of the building, two succumbed later at the BMC’s Bhagwati Hospital. While two of the dead have been identified as Faizan Sheikh and Dharmendra Harijan, believed to be local vegetable vendors, three person’s from watchman’s family included a 7 year old daughter and 35 year old wife. Third person was his brother-in-law. All three had come to meet him 20 days ago.
