At least 12 labourers were killed and 20 injured after a wall of a salt factory in Morbi's Halvad GIDC collapsed on Wednesday in Gujarat. Three more are feared buried.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoled the death of labourers and announced a compensation of Rs 2 lakh each from PMNRF to the next of kin.

“The tragedy in Morbi caused by a wall collapse is heart-rending. In this hour of grief, my thoughts are with the bereaved families. May the injured recover soon. Local authorities are providing all possible assistance to the affected,” Modi said in a tweet.

Of them, 12 deaths have been confirmed.
