MUMBAI: A portion of a vacant building collapsed here on Friday morning, but no casualty was reported, a civic body official said.

The ground plus four-storey building is located at Lokmanya Tilak Marg near the Mumbai police headquarters in southern part of the metropolis, said the official of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

A portion of the structure, 'Ahmed', which was in a dilapidated state and already vacated, came down crashing at around 10.45 am, he said.
