Tribune News Service

Rohtak, July 21

A woman and a five-year-old boy were killed when a wall collapsed on their slums due to torrential rain in Palika Colony here on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday.

Five other slum dwellers suffered injuries. They have been admitted to the PGIMS where one of them is stated to be critical. The deceased were Shivani (23) and Adarsh.

The incident took place around 1 am. The slums are adjacent to a nine-feet outer wall of the main sewage disposal at the Jhajjar road.

Shivaji Colony SHO Balwant Singh said they got the information about the incident around 2 am. “We rushed to the spot and thereafter went to the PGIMS. Around four to five who sustained minor injuries were discharged while a woman is still admitted. Proceedings have been filed under Section 174 of the CrPC,” he added.
