One killed, three injured in Kolkata mall accident

Kolkata, Jan 12 : One person was killed and three others were critically injured Sunday when a ladder on which they were working inside a shopping mall here collapsed, police said.

The incident happened in the South City Mall, leading to pandemonium among visitors.

The four workers were busy putting up banners while standing on a ladder when it collapsed.
