Residents to take out a Candle March today in memory of the dead
Gurugram, Feb. 17 (Delhi Crown): One week has passed by since the vertical collapse occurred at the Chintels Paradiso housing society in Gurugram’s Sector-109, claiming lives of two women and leaving many injured.
No arrests have been made yet, though an FIR has been filed under various IPC sections, including Sec. 304 (Culpable Homicide amounting to Murder), at the Bajghera Police Station.
The enraged residents continue with their protests at a small makeshift tent placed right at the entrance of the housing society, demanding immediate arrests of the builders and giving them strictest possible punishment as per the law of the land.
In the memory of the two women who lost their lives on Feb. 10, residents of Chintels Paradiso will take out a Candle March on Thursday evening around the Tower-D where the unfortunate incident took place sending shock waves around the satellite town of Gurugram.
Tushar Chaudhary, a resident at Chintels Paradiso told www.thedelhicrown.com – “One week has passed by since the tragedy hit us. We, all residents here, are still in a shock. The two women who died were residents of our society. They were one amongst us. We miss them every moment. Today we will carry out a Candle March in their memory.”
This was an unprecedented incident in the history of real estate in India.
Ever since the flat owners started living at Chintels Paradiso, they had been complaining to the local police, Bajghera Police Station, but no heed was paid to their woes by either the police or the local DTCP (Department of Town and Country Planning) who gave the Occupancy Certificate (OC) to the builders.
The housing city is barely four years old, but incidents of wall-plasters coming off and big cracks near windows and doors are quite common here.
