Bhendi building collapse: Case of culpable homicide registered against SBUT officials

ANI  |  Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India] 

A case of culpable homicide has been registered against the officials of Saif Burhani Uplifting (SBUT) in the Bhendi Bazar collapse case in which 33 people lost their lives.

The Police said on Thursday that an FIR has been registered against SBUT as they didn't get the three-storey building vacated despite receiving notice and warnings from concerned departments like Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA).

On August 31, the three-storey building collapsed in Bhendi Bazar, following which Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced an ex-gratia of Rs. 5 lakh for the kin of the deceased.

Taking stock of the situation, the Chief Minister had also assured that an action would be taken in case of any negligence in the incident.
