Death of 17 people in wall collapse : govt jobs in a week, says NCSC

Coimbatore, Dec 5 (UNI) A delegation of the National Commission for
Scheduled Castes today visited the Nadur village near Mettupalayam
in this district where 17 people in three houses were killed after a 20 ft
high compound collapsed and fell on them due to heavy rain.
The Commission Chairman Naresh Katheria and Vice Chairman
Dr L Murugan visited the mishap spot and consoled the family
members of the victims.
They also inspected the remaining portion of the dilapidated compound
wall which was later demolished by the district administration.
Talking to reporters, Dr Murugan said jobs would be provided to the
family members of the 17 deceased as promised by the government.
On allegations that building owner had constructed the wall deliberately
to discriminate against the dalits who perished in the wall collapse, he
said it was being probed and the cases would be registered against the
owner under the SC/ST act.
He said the commission was holding an inquiry to ascertain whether the
wall was constructed to discriminate against Dalits.
He also said memo would be issued to the officials, who had failed to
inspect the safety worthiness of the wall despite complaints by various
organisations and locals on the danger posed by it.
