Building collapse in Grandpass: Relatives of victims seek transparent probe
The family members of the victims in the building collapse in Grandpass where seven people died early this year, staged a protest at the site of the tragedy, alleging that no proper investigation had been carried out into the incident.
Seven people were killed and two injured when a single-storey building used to store spices collapsed at Babapulle Place, Grandpass on February 14, 2018.
The protesters alleged although four months had elapsed since the incident, compensation had not been paid to the family members of the victims and that the Police had not conducted a proper investigation into the incident.
They also accused that they had a suspicion on the deaths of the workers because there had been a conspiracy to kill the owner of the company who also died in the accident.
Therefore, they urged the authorities to look into the incident and mete out justice.
