A portion of the building, which was being built to be used as a heliport during Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj, collapsed on Wednesday night. At least two labourers got trapped in the collapse. They were, however, rescued later.
Several construction works have been taken up in Prayagraj ahead of the Kumbh Mela, which is slated to begin on January 15. A new temporary city, which is believed to be the largest in the world, has been set up along Prayagraj, which has 250-km long roads and 22 pontoon bridges.
