Rescue teams said that the incident occurred when goods were being offloaded from a container onto the roof. 

Officials said the incident will be probed thoroughly. “It would be premature to talk about now how this tragedy unfolded,” they further said.

Rescue personnel said it will take time to clear the remaining structure of the collapsed factory
