Bengaluru: A building of a nursery school located on Cooks Road near Shivajinagar, operated by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), collapsed before classes were due to start.


Every day, 70-80 nursery children attend school, and if the building had collapsed during school hours, it would have resulted in a major tragedy, an IANS report said.

Police said that the authorities have started clearing the debris with JCB machines.

Locals have criticized the authorities for running the nursery school in a dilapidated building, posing a grave danger to the children.

Congress MLA from Shivajinagar, Rizwan Arshad, reacting to the incident, explained that the authorities have already identified old buildings in the constituency.


“Including the one which collapsed, three school buildings will be constructed. A tender has already been floated, and a new building will be built soon,” he stated.
