Almost fifteen months after infamous Shil-Daighar building collapse in which 74 people were killed, police has arrested the chief contractor of the structure from Latur.
“With the arrest of Laxman Rathod Saturday evening, the total number of arrests in the case has gone up to 25,” Sanjeev Kadam, senior inspector of Thane crime branch, said on Sunday.
