Ratan Heights boundary collapsed due to heavy rain

Due to heavy rain since morning another boundary of Ratan Heights located in Morabadi collapsed on Sunday. The wall separating this twelve-storey residential building from the new construction site collapsed amid heavy rains. Besides, the water level in the huge pit dug for construction has also risen considerably. Due to boundary collapse, there is a possibility of water from the pit entering the foundation of Ratan Heights. This has increased the danger to the building. Due to this, the people living in the building are in great panic.

It is noteworthy that in the Ratan Heights case, Jharkhand High Court had recently given a verdict against the builder and ordered to stop the illegal construction immediately. Orders were also given to fill the said pit and make necessary arrangements for the safety of the building. But the builder has not taken any step in this direction till now. Now today another boundary wall collapse has proved that the building has become unsafe due to illegal construction. It is noteworthy that last time a car also fell into a pit along with the boundary wall. Since that time the main road entering the building is still closed. The road on that route has also started sinking and is quite damaged. At present the people of the building are forced to go into the building through a temporary dirt road.
Meanwhile, the risk of building collapse has increased due to the collapse of two boundary walls of the building due to a big pit dug for illegal construction.
