At least two people were killed and 10 others were injured after a two-story building collapsed in Bihar Colony in Karachi's Lyari area on Sunday, according to police. Dawn reports.

City Senior Superintendent of Police Muquddus Haider said that there were godowns on the ground floor and residential rooms in the second storey that were mostly occupied by laborers.

The structure of the building appeared to be faulty, which was further weakened due to construction activity on the adjacent plot.

It appeared to be criminal negligence of the owners of both, the building and the plot, as well as that contractor that caused this tragedy and an FIR would be registered against them.
