SC Issues Notice to Tamil Nadu on Building Collapse
The Supreme Court issued notices to the Centre and Tamil Nadu on a PIL which sought to hold government agencies accountable for the crash of a building. The petition, filed by two Chennai-based lawyers R Krishna Murthy and N Rajaraman, said, “State government officials like revenue, district town planning authority, fire and rescue services, hydrologist constituted under the Central Wetlands Regulatory Authority have measurably failed to uphold the fundamental right guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. There are so many buildings under construction on wetland-like water bodies especially near Chennai.” The petitioners sought directions to preserve wetlands and to restrain construction on them in addition to a CBI probe into the crash.
 
A bench, headed by Justice HL Dattu, ordered notices to be issued to Tamil Nadu government and other states on the plea of the petitioner seeking a CBI probe into the multi-storeyed building’s collapse. The crash of the 12-storey building on a patch of wetland on the outskirts of Chennai killed 61 construction labourers and raised questions about procedures involved in issuing clearances for new real estate projects.
