VELLORE: Nine people, including four children, were killed and nine others injured after a rain-soaked house collapsed at Pernambet in Vellore on Friday. According to police, some families living on Muslim Street on the banks of Kottaru River used to take shelter in the concrete house belonging to Aslam Ansari whenever there is heavy water flow in the river. On Thursday night, 18 people from five to six families slept in Ansari’s house.
As the basement of the house got eroded due to continuous exposure to river water over the past few days, a major portion of the house collapsed around 8am on Friday. CM M K Stalin announced a solatium of Rs 5 lakh each to the families of the deceased and Rs 50,000 each to the injured.
