Wadala wall collapse: Bombay High Court orders setting up of panel to implement IIT’s suggestions

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court ordered on Wednesday that a three-member panel be set up to implement remedial measures suggested by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Bombay following the collapse of a building wall here.

The committee will comprise a senior civic officer and two experts from IIT-Bombay. The court was hearing a petition filed by Dosti Blossom Cooperative Housing Society, located near the building whose wall collapsed in suburban Wadala last month, challenging permissions granted to Dosti Realty for constructing multi-storeyed buildings in that area.

Several cars in the petitioner building’s parking lot were damaged after the wall of its adjacent building had collapsed. The petition also alleged that because of the ongoing constructions by Dosti Realty, their building had developed cracks.
