Judicial comm invites public inputs about building collapse
New Delhi: A one-member judicial commission,
probing last month`s East Delhi building collapse that claimed
70 lives, has invited details about the incident from people
who want to share it with the panel.
In a public notice, the inquiry commission asked citizens
and groups concerned to furnish information about the incident
in the form of affidavits, which will be kept confidential.
Former Delhi High Court judge Justice Lokeshwar Prashad
was appointed by Delhi Government on November 19, four days
after the incident, to probe the collapse.
The commission was asked to find out reasons that led to
the mishap and suggest measures to overhaul the system which
can act as a "deterrence" against such tragedies.
It was asked to probe all aspects of the collapse
including whether there was any procedural, administrative and
statutory lapses that led to the tragedy.
Seventy people had died when a four-storey building
collapsed at Lalita Park in Laxmi Nagar area on November 15.
