    Kamala Mills fire: HC asks probe panel to submit report on Sept 10

    Kamala Mills Fire

    MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court today asked the committee probing the Kamala Mills Compound fire incident that claimed 14 lives to submit its report before the court on September 10.

    In April this year, the high court had ordered that a three-member committee be set up to conduct an inquiry into the incident that took place last year. The panel was later set up and it is headed by retired chief justice A V Savant and has two other members — Vasant Thakur, an architect on one of the high court panels, and former chief secretary K Nalinakshan.

    The committee was directed earlier to submit its report to the high court on August 31. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation moved an application today before a division bench of Justices B R Gavai and M S Karnik seeking extension of the time granted to the committee to submit its report.

    “The committee has completed its proceedings. All the data is being compiled and the report is being prepared. The committee has sought time till September 10 to submit its final report to the high court,” BMC’s counsel Anil Sakhare told the court.

    The bench accepted the request and said the committee shall submit its report on September 10. The court was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by retired IPS officer Julio Ribeiro, seeking, among other things, a judicial inquiry into the fire tragedy. –
