A day after a labourer died and two others were injured, after a 6-ft wall at a hotel site in Sector 18 that was under construction collapsed, Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Shayin on Monday ordered the registration of an FIR against the owner of the site, structure engineer and architect, who was hired by the owner, for alleged negligence.
Last year, when a similar tragedy had happened which took the lives of four labourers, the then ADC M L Sharma, who was asked to submit an inquiry report in the matter, had recommended that no construction should be allowed without having adequate safety measures in place. It was also recommended that soil should be tested before work began at the site.
However, in this case there were no safety measures in place for the labourers, who were digging the basement, and the soil was also not tested before construction began at the site.
On Sunday, Sita Ram, a labourer, whose body was taken out from the debris after an intensive operation by the police and fire brigade, was declared brought dead to the hospital.
Two others labourers, Umesh Kumar and Manoj Kumar, were rescued and admitted to Government Multi Speciality Hospital with injuries. The rescue operation went on for an hour.
As many as 12 labourers were working at the site of Jallundhur Hotel at the time of the incident, and three were trapped in the debris as the wall collapsed.
