Ten persons were killed and six injured when a hotel building at Indore, about 195 km from Bhopal, capital of Madhya Pradesh, collapsed after a auto hit its façade on Saturday night, according to media reports.

The building, which is very old and in dilapidated condition, housed hotels and lodges.

Rescue operations are underway in the area and police personnel are attempting to pull out those feared trapped under the rubbles.

Calling the incident "painful", Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Twitter that the government was monitoring the rescue operations.

To this, Singh said, "The hotel building was old. But its owner had tried to make it look spic and span by keeping it well painted and decorated from outside". The building was old and the collapse took place after a vehicle collided with a pillar put up on the front portion of the building. The incident happened almost a month after a two-storey building was collapsed in Madhya Pradesh's Shajapur district. As per police reports, there are still at least 20 people trapped under the debris of the hotel building.

"Early morning visuals from #Indore building collapse site, the incident has claimed 10 lives".

Indore Commissioner Sanjay Dubey said a detailed inquiry will be held to ascertain the reason behind the collapse.

However, it was not yet clear as to how many people were present in the hotel at the time of the mishap, he said.
