Following rounds of complaints demanding investigation in the recent fire incidents at Supertech Ecociti, a highrise apartment based in Sector 137, Noida police on Friday visited and listened to the grievances of the residents.
As per the residents, the policemen took statements of the victims and inspected the society, especially the spots from where the fire had broken out.
Cdr (retired) Raj Kumar, a resident of the society told that police inspected the spots where the fire had broken out four days ago on August 26. He said, "Since day one, we have been demanding investigation in the incident but such a grave concern was overlooked."
The police visit comes right after the residents raised the issue on social media, Twitter. In their complaints, they tagged senior government officials in the tweets. Residents alleged that earlier police was not accepting their complaints on the issue.
Kumar said, "Two of the residents of the society had given written complaints to the police to lodge an FIR against RK Arora, CMD of Supertech and Nitish Arora, head of the facility with the realty company for the lapses due to which fire incidents occurred twice in the past two weeks in the society."
Shortly after the police visit, the developer's officials also visited the society on the same day and met with the residents. Nitish Arora, Head Facility, and Vikas Kansal, Project Director, were presented in the meeting which was held yesterday. Residents complained that the developer misled them about Fire NOC, which stood invalid due to pending works and even the Chief Fire Officer, GB Nagar had raised objections in the past.
During the meeting, residents exchanged heated arguments with Nitish Arora, who sought time for two to three days to solve the problems.
Dissatisfied with the assurances made by the management representatives, the residents demanded replacement of security agency as their services are not as per the expected standard. As a result, the management agreed to remove the agency and hire a new one immediately.
