District Magistrate Manish Bansal said: “The roof of a private cold room located on Islam Nagar Road in the Chandausi Police Station area suddenly collapsed on Thursday. Ten people have died in this incident so far.

In Lucknow, a government spokesman said that Chief Minister Yogi has instructed to give Rs 2 lakhs to each of the relatives of the deceased, while Rs 50,000 to the seriously injured. He has also called for free treatment to be provided to those injured in the accident. The spokesperson said that the Chief Minister has also constituted an investigative committee headed by the Commissioner and the DIG (Deputy Inspector General of Police), Moradabad, to investigate the cause of the cold storage collapse and submit the report as soon as possible.

District magistrate Bansal said that concrete and other construction materials have been removed from the rubble and now work is underway to remove potato sacks. Police Superintendent Chakresh Mishra said it is feared that other victims of the accident are also buried under the rubble. He said relief and rescue work is still going on in the cold storage. Regional Police Deputy Inspector General Shalabh Mathur said 21 people have so far been evacuated from cold storage, of whom ten have died and the rest have been admitted to hospital.
