The building had three shops on the ground floor and rooms on the first floor. “I already knew that the building is a threat to people living near by and passers-by. That’s why I wanted the MC to demolish it,” he added.

However,Monika Anand,assistant town planner,zone B,said: “I was not aware of any such incident. Building branch engineers will do site inspection on Monday after which required action will be taken.”
