A four-storey rickety hotel house collapsed in central India, killing at the least 10 people and wounding another three, police articulated Sunday.

The Time of India newspaper said the dilapidated building collapsed after a auto smashed its front portion.

The hotel with 25 rooms was located in the commercial centre of Indore, close to railway and bus depots. Indore is practically 900 kilometres( 560 miles) south of New Delhi.

Building breakdowns are common in India as developers try to cut corners by using substandard fabrics, and as multi-story formations are made with inadequate oversight. The massive demand for casing around India’s municipalities and prevalent decay often result in makes adding illegal storeys or putting up illegal buildings.

In August 2017, 33 beings were killed when an apartment building collapsed in India’s financial capital of Mumbai.
