Five members of a family, including three children, were killed when the roof of a dilapidated house caved in the Alambagh area of the state capital Lucknow on Saturday, police sources said here.

Police sources said the incident took place in the railway colony in Anand Nagar locality when the roof of the house collapsed in the early hours between 4 am and 5 am.

"Five members of a family, including Satish Chandra (40), his wife Sarojini Devi (35), sons Harshit (13), Ansh (5), and daughter Harshita (10), were buried under the debris," they said.

Police sources said senior officers, along with force, fire tenders, and the SDRF team, reached the spot and launched a rescue operation.
