Six people were killed and many feared trapped when a multi-storey building in the city's congested Ejipura area collapsed on early on Monday minutes after a cooking-gas cylinder exploded.
K.J. George said the government has chose to adopt the little girl and would take care of all her expenses. The building collapsed, trapping several people in the debris. Home minister Ramalinga Reddy has confirmed that three persons have dead in the incident. "Cylinders on both ground and first floor had no gas in them", he said.
Rescue personnel pulled out three people from under the debris and rushed them to nearby hospitals.
Although initial reports suggested that the buildings collapsed due to an explosion of an LPG cylinder, Reddy refuted the charges. They said a noise of the blast was heard and the 20-year-old building was reduced to rubble. Sources said that four houses collapsed following the explosion.

The rescue operation is reportedly being carried out by at least 40 firefighters and NDRF personnel.
