Indian authorities on Sunday demolished two 32 floors of "Apex" and the 29 of "Ceyane” skyscrapers in a residential area on the outskirts of New Delhi, due to "violation of building rules."

Plans to demolish the two structures, which are 103 metres high, included a process that took between 12 and 15 seconds, with 3,700 kilograms of explosives.

The authorities were forced to evacuate people living in the vicinity early on Sunday, to be allowed to return to their homes five hours after the completion of the demolition.
