Mumbai: A person and 20 other people were injured in the collapse of the roof of Bank of Maharashtra branch located on the ground floor of the three-storeyed building in Maharashtra’s Solapur district on Wednesday, July, 31.
The police shared that roof of the bank was collapsed around 11.30 AM in the morning at Maharashtra’s Solapur district.
“We have registered a case under IPC section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) against owners Shobha Doshi, Rajesh Doshi, Suchita Doshi, and Sandesh Doshi,” said the police official.
“To create more floor space, the owners put up additional slab between the hospital and the bank, but there was no proper support to the roof and it was placed only on some metal angles,” he said.
“It seems that while constructing the slab, the owners had not taken permission from the authorities,” he added.
“Some patients fell into the bank when the roof caved in, and around 20 people, most of them bank customers, were trapped under the debris,” said the officer.
