A 72-year-old woman died after her house collapsed in snow-bound Tatora-Gajoth village, 25 km from Bhaderwah, in Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.

A police official said Seetu Devi came under the debris of the house after it collapsed around 3:20 AM. 

SHO Bhadarwah Munir Khan said Devi (72) who was sleeping at the time of the incident died on the spot.

"The house had become weak and repeated spells of heavy snowfall led to its collapse," he said, adding that SOG Gajoth and the police party from Bhalla Post started a rescue operation and retrieved the body of the elderly woman from the debris.
