According to reports from news agency PTI, the incident occurred past midnight, yet no injuries were reported.

Authorities stated that the roof gave way partially around 12:45 am, scattering debris throughout the central section of the mall. While fortunate that no casualties occurred, an investigation into the cause of the collapse has been initiated, as confirmed by the police.
