As many as 22 people were killed and 26 injured as the wall of a wedding hall collapsed in Rajasthan's Bharatpur in the late hours of Wednesday.

In the aftermath of 22 people being killed after a wedding hall collapsed here, District Magistrate N.K. Gupta said the incident was triggered due to a thunderstorm and rainfall in the district.

"To protect themselves from the rain, some guests tried to stand under a wall, which subsequently collapsed, killing 22 and injuring over 28 people, out of which two have been critically injured. They have been hospitalised and are being attended to by a team of doctors," he said.

The incident took place in Annapurna Marriage Home located on Sewar road in Rajasthan's Bharatpur. (ANI)
