A day after eight-year-old Masoom Arif Khatri died in a slab collapse in Sewri, corporators Thursday demanded compensation for the family. The incident occurred at a building being renovated in a BMC colony.
Corporator Yakub Memon said at a general body meeting, "Generally, BMC buildings are poorly maintained; because of this lax attitude, the child suffered. BMC should give the family compensation."
Congress corporator Waqarunisa Ansari demanded BMC conduct a structural audit of buildings in all its colonies.
Mayor Sunil Prabhu said they would investigated the cause of the incident and whether the contractor appointed for renovation work was responsible.
