Wall From High Rise Flat Collapsed in Kalyani
On Sunday morning an 8 inch thick wall of around 135 sq ft (15 ft X 9 ft) that rose from the edge of a cantilever of the multi storied building being constructed near the Market-II at B-1 block, had collapsed. The wall was supposed to be developed as one of the walls of an overhead water reservoir that collapsed at around 10.30 am from the top of the 4th floor building, which is about 55 ft high from the ground level. None was injured in the incident. Only a over head tank was demolished. However, taking note of the incident, the Kalyani Municipality authority stopped all construction works in the town for a fresh checking of building norms from security perspectives. A core committee has been constituted, which will examine the ongoing and new works to find out if any building norms specified under Municipal Acts have were violated. Picture by TAPAN DAS.
