As the matter came up for hearing this afternoon before Justice Rajan Gupta’s Bench, UT counsel Gautam Dutt informed the court that an order had been passed by the Administration for a probe by the premier investigation agency, but he was not aware of the terms of reference. Taking a note of the assertion, Justice Gupta asked him to apprise the court of the terms of reference on the next date. Justice Gupta also adjourned the case hearing to next month after the counsel appearing for the CBI submitted that he had no information about the order passed by the Administration on the CBI probe. He, as such, was required to contact the CBI Superintendent of Police. An FIR in the matter was registered on February 9 last year for an attempt to murder and another offence under Sections 307 and 34 of the IPC at the Sector 3 police station. The development took place on a petition filed by Ramanjit Kaur against the UT Administration and other respondents. Mother of one of the accused, she, through counsel Pawan Kumar, was seeking directions to the UT Administration for referring the matter to the CBI for an investigation. It was alleged that the petitioner and her family were being harassed in the name of investigation. The victim, Akansh, was allegedly hit and dragged under the wheels of a BMW car in Sector 9 on February 9 last year. Following the incident, the police had slapped a murder charge against two accused — Balraj Singh and Harmehtab Singh. Referring to the events as narrated in the FIR, one of the accused had earlier claimed in his anticipatory bail plea that the victim, along with another person, visited the house of Deep Sidhu early in the morning to enquire about a friend, Shera. They were apprehending that Shera and Harmehtab Singh were together in the house. It was then that Balraj Singh got into his car with Harmehtab Singh sitting on the passenger side and allegedly drove the car over the victim. ZIRAKPUR BUILDING COLLAPSE Supdt, two JEs found negligent, suspended Sanjeev Singh Bariana Tribune News Service Chandigarh, May 29 The Department of Local Government, Punjab, on Tuesday suspended superintendent Balwinder Singh and junior engineers Rajiv Kumar and Anil Sharma for failing to perform their duty of supervising work at the four-storeyed building of Imperial Gardens Society at Peer Muchalla in Zirakpur, which collapsed on April 13. The building that collapsed existed on six plots (number 139 to 144), spread over 6.9 acres. The report has indicated that major construction defects were detected in the structures which came up on plots 143 and 144. All three officials have been served a chargesheet. Punjab Local Government Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu said the action was taken on the basis of an inquiry report submitted by the Dera Bassi SDM, who had worked in collaboration with a team of experts from Punjab Engineering College. Sidhu said, “Other supervisory officers — AME Sukhwinder Singh, ME Gurpratap Singh, SE Kuldip Verma and EOs SK Aggarwal and Mandeep Singh Gill — have been issued show-cause notices for “delinquency” in discharging their duties of effective supervisory control. The report has clearly indicated that the builders had failed to give a notice of construction and also the reports required to be submitted at different stages of the construction. The report has recommended that there should be a provision for penal action against buildings without the completion and structural safety certificates. Submission of structural drawings and stability should be made mandatory. Buildings beyond three storeys should be passed only by qualified engineers. continued on page 3 “Free training for experienced Laparoscopic Surgeons.” F e a g r x n MC to collect property tax on May 30, 31 CHANDIGARH: The local Municipal Corporation has decided to collect property tax during the strike by banks on May 30 and May 31 at hall number 20 on the ground floor of the MC building in Sector 17.
