At least three people were killed after a wall collapsed at the Indian Institute of Management, Indore (IIM-Indore), on Wednesday.

No students were hurt in the incident, but two children living in a structure where the wall collapsed were killed. 

IIM Indore's Media and Public Relations Committee told IBTimes India that a part of the boundary wall fell on an 'unauthorised structure' near a campus gate, killing three people. 

"There was an unauthorised structure opposite the portion of the wall which collapsed near Gate 3. Three persons who were in that structure died due to the perimeter wall collapsing on them," IIM Indore said in a statement. 

"The wall probably collapsed due to the heavy rains. There were no students at the scene when the wall collapsed. We had informed the management earlier about the unauthorised structure. Unfortunately, this happened," IIM Indore's Public Relations head Akhtar Parvez told IBTimes. 

Those killed were living in the structure, he added. 

A woman and her two children, aged 12 and 16, were killed, according to the Press Trust of India. 

The Times of India tweeted about the incident on Wednesday.
