Mangaluru, June 26 2018: A huge compound wall has collapsed over a house at Dasaramoole near Konaje on June 25, Monday night due to heavy rains. Though the house was damaged, all the six persons who were inside had a miraculous escape.
The house belonged to Nirmala. While the roofing has collapsed, walls have also developed cracks. Nirmala, her children Vidya, Ramesh, nephew Putnanja and grandchildren were sleeping when the compound wall of their neighbour Devyanna Shetty collapsed with a loud thud.
