The death toll in Sunday’s building collapse near Kumarhatti in Himachal Solan district rose to 14 after 12 more bodies were retrieved from the debris on Monday. Two bodies had been found by Sunday night, while 28 people — 17 Army men and 11 civilians — had been rescued. Of those killed, 13 are soldiers and one is a civilian. A total of 42 people had been trapped after the building came down.
The structural defects in the building, which housed a dhaba and guesthouse, are being blamed for its collapse.
