A 35 year-old woman died, while five of her family members escaped with minor injuries when the mud wall of their tin-roofed house collapsed on them on Thursday night at Mangalhat following heavy downpour, the police said on Friday.

The deceased, Indu bai, her husband Ramesh, a labourer, their three children and his mother were asleep when the wall caved in apparently due to seepage of rain water, said the Mangalhat Inspector G. Sridhar. He was residing in the mud-wall house on the slope of a hillock at Indiranagar.

Police rushed the family members to Osmania General Hospital. However, Indu Bai was declared brought dead.

Other members of the family are receiving treatment at the hospital.
