Thane Building Collapse Roundup

Five days ago, a poorly constructed building in the Shil Phata area of Thane in Maharashtra (India) collapsed, killing 74 hapless people. A total of around 9 people connected to this incident have been remanded to police custody on Sunday, until April 20. Two key persons arrested are the builders Jamil Qureishi and Salim Sheikh who were held from UP and Thane respectively. In a nation where corruption is wide awake while the civic authorities continue to doze, this is bound to happen someday. By the way, of the 9 arrested 2 are in the rank of municipal commissioners.

A slideshow timeline of the collapse and its horrific impact on the affected victims:
