At least one person was killed, and two others injured, after a parking shed collapsed during BMC’s demolition drive in Kemps Corner earlier today.

According to preliminary information, the incident took place on Thursday evening when the civic body was demolishing illegal extensions made at the parking shed of Sea Side building next to Indian Oil Petro Pump near Kemps Corner on B.D Road, Gaondevi.
