Another four were badly injured due to wall collapse in the city’s Bandlaguda area. M A Majeed, assistant commissioner of police, Falaknuma informed that this mishap took place on Tuesday at about 11 pm.


“Two houses were badly damaged and nine persons died on the spot. They include five victims in one family and four others from different families. Four persons sustained serious injuries and are undergoing treatment at Owaisi hospital,” Majeed said.


The wall collapse accident spot was visited by Asaduddin Owaisi, renowned Hyderabad MP who was joined by the president of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).


“I was at a spot inspection in Mohammaedia Hills, Bandlaguda where a private boundary wall fell, resulting in death of nine people and injuring two,” said Owaisi in a tweet. “On my from there, I gave a lift to stranded bus passengers in Shamshabad, now I’m on my way to Talabkatta and Yesrab Nagar,” he tweeted further.


Non-stop rains for 24 hrs in the state had made life come to a pause due to excessive water logging and flooding of the low-lying areas. The rains intensified after 6.00 pm in the evening of Tuesday.
