At least 12 people lost their lives after a two-storeyed house collapsed, reduced to rubble following an explosion in Walidpur, a village in Uttar Pradesh state.
Top state police officer O P Singh says another 15 people were injured in Monday's collapse in a village in the country's north.
Singh remarks police are investigating whether the collapse was caused by a cooking gas container exploding in the building.
He adds five people from a single family were killed at the location, while another five succumbed to their injuries in a hospital.
