A portion of the sessions court in Kala Ghoda,where the Sewree fast-track court was shifted a few days ago,needs serious repairs.
A part of the sessions court is in a 150-year-old colonial building and another in a relatively new one constructed in 1972. This new building is in bad shape. Its plaster has begun to come off,laying bare iron rods of beams and pillars.
A passage joining the old and new buildings was closed Monday.
Assistant registrar S S Luman confirmed repairs would be carried out over the next few days.
The structure is strong. It is a precautionary measure to enure there is no untoward incident, the in-charge of maintenance said.
In July,a report submitted to Bombay High Court by a structural consultant called the five-storey Mazgaon court building built in 1997 weak. Weeks later,the court was shifted to the Sewree premises,and the five courts in Sewree to the sessions court.
