Police had alleged that Kumar was responsible for the construction and Rama Nand was supervising the construction.
The court however, allowed bail for Rama Nand and Praveen Kumar, holding that police had as yet been unable to prove that "inferior material" were used in the construction.
"No investigation has been conducted as to why the MCD had not taken any action on the letter of the SHO of Prasad Nagar," said the court.
The court held the two agencies liable for the collapse of the building, stating that "they were either negligent in performing their duties or they deliberately had not taken any action against the wrongful acts of the accused with dome ulterior motive."
