Kerala: ADGP Thachankary visits Maradu flats


ANI General News
Chief of the Crime Branch, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Tomin J Thachankary, on Sunday visited the Maradu flats in Kochi here.
Thachankary is the in-charge of the special investigation team (SIT) probing the alleged illegal appropriation of government land and violation of coastal zone regulation norms by the builder in the construction of the Maradu flats.
This comes as the residents of the flats are on an indefinite hunger strike against their eviction.
The Supreme Court has directed the state authorities to evict the residents by October 3 and ordered an interim compensation of Rs 25 lakh to each flat owner to be paid within four weeks' time.
The court had also said that it will appoint a committee comprising retired judges, technical experts, and civil engineers to assess the balance compensation payable to the flat owners by the builders and to oversee the demolition.
As per the court order, as many as 400 flats are scheduled to be demolished.
