Collapsed building lacked NBRO permit?

Investigations so far have revealed that the partly constructed building which collapsed in Wellawatta yesterday (18) has been constructed without the permit of the National Building Research Organisation (NBRO).

Doubts have also been raised whether the building’s standards have been approved by the Colombo Municipality Council.

The Dehiwala District secretary - Nalini Subramaniam has informed media that an investigation is underway.

One person was reported dead while 21 were hospitalised with injuries.

The following are several pictures reported from the scene of the incident.
