GURUGRAM: The CBI team investigating the vertical cave-in of five flats at Chintels Paradiso in which two residents were killed on February 10 last year has written to the deputy commissioner and the district town planner to share information on the case.

Apart from project details and related approvals, including licence, occupation certificates (OC) and construction-related information, the probe agency also sought the IIT report related to the testing of samples.

The CBI took over the investigation on January 17 after the Centre’s order came on December 29, 2022. However, the original FIR was filed by Gurgaon police on February 12 last year. It was the Haryana government that had recommended a CBI probe on July 18 last year.

In a letter to the deputy commissioner, the head of CBI’s Chandigarh branch, Navdeep Singh Brar, said the scrutiny of police records had revealed that a committee under the chairmanship of additional deputy commissioner Vishram Meena was constituted to look into the matter.

“For the purpose of investigation, copy of minutes of the meeting of the committee, details of collection of samples, correspondence with IIT-Delhi and other institutions with regard to testing, original reports of IIT and other institutions and copies of various complaints regarding substandard execution of work (are needed),” the letter read.

The agency also requested the district administration to depute an officer well acquainted with the facts and circumstances to furnish the records at the earliest.

In another letter to the district town and country planning department (DTCP), the CBI sought details related to the project, including the copy of licence, building plan approval, OCs and other related approvals. “We are preparing a file to provide it to the CBI for the agency to begin its probe,” said an official.

Officials said both letters were received on Sunday.

On February 10 last year, two residents were killed after the dining room floor of a sixth-floor flat in Tower D at Chintels Paradiso in Sector 109 came crashing down, triggering the collapse of roofs and floors directly under it till the first floor.

Soon after the cave-in, deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav had constituted a special investigation team (SIT).

With two FIRs registered in the case, the SIT began its investigation, only to make its first arrest — Amit Austin, the owner of Manish Switchgear and Construction, the company which was carrying out the repair work in flat D-603 that triggered the collapse — on November 21 last year.
