Seeking an inquiry into the illegal structures and fire compliance of all rooftop restaurants, malls, shops, and establishments, BJP leader Vivekanand Gupta filed a petition before the Maharashtra State Human Rights Commission asking for action against those violating the building code and legal provisions.This comes after the death of 26 people in two fire-related mishaps at the Bhanu Farsan shop at Saki Naka and the Kamala Mills compound. Gupta, who is the secretary of the Mumbai BJP, has called on the commission to direct the state government, the police, the BMC and the chief fire officer to probe the open space violations, fire compliance and building violations in all commercial establishments and then revert with the action taken against the offenders.The petition, which was filed before the commission on Saturday, has sought that the Human Rights Commission call for all documents and noting from the BMC and the fire department about the steps taken regarding the illegal structures at the farsan shop and the Kamala Mills compound, complaints received, and subsequently, the action taken.The petition also calls for an inquiry into the violation of human rights and for information about the steps taken by these agencies to prevent such incidents from recurring in the future.“In a span of just around 10 days, 26 deaths have occurred due to massive fires. This is because of the negligent attitude of the civil servants,” said Gupta after filing the petition. He added that those who lost their lives in these tragedies must be given compensation by state agencies. The petition seeks that the commission must conduct an inquiry into the violation of human rights, negligence and abetment by the state government officials.
