The authorities, on Monday, had said that only two people had sustained injuries after the parapet on the third and fourth floors of Bengaluruâ€™s Mantri Mall came crashing down. However, two more people had sustained injuries that day, which the authorities did not know about, The New Indian Express reported.
Amreen, who works as a sales girl at the Soch store, which is located on the first floor of the mall was on the second floor having lunch with the staffers. She was on her way back to the store, when the parapet came crashing down and she sustained injuries to her forehead. The accident left her with four stitches, the report states.
Amreenâ€™s manager took her to the nearby Apollo Hospital immediately and she was discharged from the hospital the same day. She also said that another woman named Yashoda was injured.
Yashoda also works as a sales girl but in another store named Fazalâ€™s. Yashoda fractured her leg after the rubble fell on her. Yashoda was also among the staffers who were having lunch on the second floor, the report states.
After the parapet collapsed, authorities had said that two of the mallâ€™s janitorial staff sustained minor injuries. They were taken to KC General Hospital for treatment.
The air conditioning pipe at the mall was damaged due to which water had filled up inside the AC duct. A part of the parapet on the two floors collapsed after it was weakened due to the moisture and the accumulated water.
The mall still remains shut and workers were said to go on leave for at least three more days.
