Agra: A minaret at the entry gate of the Taj Mahal crashed as heavy rain and high winds lashed Agra last night.

The pillar located on the southern entry gate of the monument fell due to rain on Thursday past midnight, sources said.

No casualties have been reported as of now.

In another rain-related incident in Uttar Pradesh, three children died in Mathura after a tin roof of their one-room house collapsed. The incident took place on Wednesday when their parents were not at home.
