Five-storey building tilts in India’s IT capital

In a scary incident, a five-year-old four-storey building in Bengaluru’s Hebbal area tilted creating panic among the residents.

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the city’s civic agency immediately visited the spot and vacated the residents from the tilted building in Hebbal-Kempapura’s G Ramaiah Layout and also asked residents to vacate the buildings around it.

According to the BBMP officials, the building has extra floors that were constructed without prior permission and hence, the load of those extra floors made the whole structure tilt.

The Bengaluru police have taken the building owner into custody.

The building had few paying guests and one family residing, all of whom were asked to move out. No one was injured in the incident.

BBMP officers on Wednesday started the process of demolishing the illegal structure.
