Hours after a three-storey building collapsed in Bhiwandi, two buildings located in its vicinity were vacated by the Bhiwandi Nizampur Municipal Corporation (BNMC) on Monday night, an official said on Tuesday.

These buildings were declared dangerous to live earlier by the civic body, he said.

The ill-fated Jilani building located at Narpoli's Patel Compound near Dhamankar Naka had collapsed in early hours of Monday, killing 20 people.

"Two buildings- all ground plus three-storey structures-- housing 13 tenants and around 25-30 people were vacated on Monday night," said Laxman Kokni, office superintendent for a local civic ward.

He said power supply to these two buildings was disconnected earlier.

Kokni said a decision on whether to raze these buildings will be taken later.
