A factory building located near Siemens Chowrangi in Karachi's Sindh Industrial & Trading Estate (SITE) area collapsed on Monday, according to police officials.
Several factory workers are feared trapped underneath the rubble, police said, adding that a rescue operation is ongoing.
SITE Station House Officer (SHO) Ayaz Khan said that one man has been pulled from the rubble and taken to the hospital. He added that there were fewer workers inside the factory at the time due to a break for prayer.
