New Delhi (People's Daily) - A four-floor hotel building collapsed near a bus station in Indore, India on Saturday, killing at least 10 people, according to reports.

NDTV reported that five people may still be trapped, with many others injured.

Reports said many students were staying at the hotel. 

The right side of the hotel collapsed on an auto parts shop and an ATM, according to witnesses.
