Mumbai: The death toll in the worst building crash this monsoon here has increased to 33 with 10 others still feared trapped under the debris, the BMC Disaster Control said on Friday.

At least 11 bodies were extricated from the rubble of the 117-year-old, six-storey Huseini Building, which had collapsed at 0825 hours on Thursday.

Search and rescue operations are continuing to find the trapped people.

The Hussaini Building on Maulana Shaukat Ali Road in the congested Bhendi Bazar had been red-flagged as "dangerous" six years ago.

This is the first major building collapse after Tuesday's deluge in Mumbai and the second in five days after the Chandivali Crystal Business Park crash of August 26 claimed six lives.

Earlier, on July 25, 17 persons were killed when the Sai Darshan building crashed in Ghatkopar.
