Four minors, including two girls, died after a mud wall collapsed on them in Odisha’s Ganjam district on Monday, an official said.

The incident occurred when the four children were playing near an under-construction house at Kalajamuna village in the district, revenue official Shaktikant Ray said.

Sources said incessant rain since the last three days in the southern parts of the state might have weakened the earthen wall of the house, which caved in leading to the death of the four children.

The bodies have been sent to the hospital for autopsy.
