    0

    MUMBAI: Mumbai’s municipal government said it has suspended seven engineers and is investigating another 11 members of staff after the collapse of a five-story residential building last week, which left 60 people dead. The collapse happened at daybreak on Friday while more than 90 people were inside the building owned by the Municipal Corp. of Greater Mumbai (MCGM), which has said it asked residents earlier this year to move out. It was unclear why residents had not moved, or why they had been asked to do so, but local media said the building in Mumbai’s east had been listed as needing “urgent repairs.” “The corporation has ordered an official inquiry against 18 officers and workers after the multi-story building collapsed on Friday,” the MCGM said in a statement. Out of these 18, seven engineers have already been suspended, it added, without giving details.
