Twelve people of a family died in Mughalsarai in Chandauli district on Sunday morning when a newly constructed two-storey house collapsed, reportedly because of a fault in its construction.

Two people pulled out alive from under the debris were said to be in a serious state. Local villagers were the first to come the rescue of those trapped. There was no pillar in the two-storey house and the entire construction work was not up to standard, an eyewitness claimed. The building contractor was said to be on the run after the house collapse.
