A multi-storey illegal building has come up in a posh locality of the city allegedly in connivance of the authorities
concerned. A social activist has filed a complaint to the Local Bodies’ Minister alleging involvement of a government officer. The complainant has urged the minister to take action in this regard. The name of ATP Vijay Kumar has figured in the complaint. It has been alleged that Kumar was hand in glove with the building owner as the former is not taking any action against the latter. The building has been constructed on 800 square yards area at South
City road near Pushap Vihar. It has also been alleged that laid down norms have also been violated. When contacted, ATP Vijay Kumar said, “Complainant is not aware of that who is the dealing officer in this regard. Different officers take care of the commercial buildings being built on more than 500 square yards. I am not having any concern with this. Moreover, that building is compounded and some of the amount has been deposited and some needed to be.” Social activist Kuldeep Singh Khaira, said, “I have filed a complaint to the Local Bodies’ Minister as building is mushrooming under the nose of authorities but no action has been taken by the concerned authorities. This building is associated to an influential person and because of this the department is not taking any action against them.” Despite repeated attempts ATP Raj Kumar was not available for comments.
