"Three men were killed and seven others injured after the building crashed at 4 p.m. in Kasavanahalli (a south-eastern suburb)," city Mayor Sampath Raj told the media.

"At least 15 others are still trapped under the debris and are being rescued by the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel."

The injured have been admitted to different hospitals.

"The building was at least six years old and was under repairs or renovation," Deputy Commissioner of Police Whitefield (eastern suburb) division Abdul Ahad told the media here.

The exact reason for the collapse and the details of the workers are yet to be ascertained, he said.

In October last year, five men and two women were killed as a building collapsed after a cooking gas cylinder exploded in the city's southern suburb of Ejipura.
