The ceiling plaster landed on the third floor of the mall while the metal reinforcement dropped to the ground floor, the Times of India reported.

Vashi police inspector Nitin Gite said, "The ceiling plaster had probably dampened due to the rains after which it might have loosened and it came down crashing".

The mall management has shut down the building until repairing work is complete.
