THANE: A portion of an under-repair structure collapsed at a religious place in the district, officials said today.

No one was hurt in the mishap, they said.

The repair work of a portion at the three-storey structure was in progress when it collapsed last evening at around 5.30 PM at the Bail Bazaar locality in Kalyan township of Thane district, Kalyan-Dombivili Municipal Corporation's disaster control cell chief Anil Laad said.

The building is said to be around 80 years old where the repair work was apparently going on for last two weeks.

Some people were about to get into the premises to offer evening prayers, but they stepped back as they saw the structure crashing down, sources said.

The firemen and policemen rushed to the site following the incident.

Later, the firemen carried out work to remove the debris from the premises, Laad said.

The civic officials are now examining if the repair work was sanctioned by the municipal corporation, he added.
