At least a dozen more people are still feared trapped inside the building, the DIG added.

Soon after the collapse of MS Hotel building, police, locals and passersby started rummaging through the debris at about 11.30 pm, desperately looking for survivors.

Indore: 10 people have died after a four-storey building collapsed near the crowded Sarwate bus stand in Indore on Saturday night. "But its owner had tried to make it look spic and span by keeping it well painted and decorated from outside". He said the civic body was trying to find out as to how much illegal construction had been done in the premises by its owner.

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.

Eight were brought dead and others were rushed to the MY Hospital, divisional commissioner Sanjay Dubey said.

Sources said that some passersby at the time of the mishap might also be trapped under the debris.

A large team of police and fire brigade personnel have been carrying out rescue operations through the night.
