The Tiruchi Corporation will soon issue a show cause notice to the owner of the Hotel Sri Krishna’s demanding reply that why action should not be initiated against him for putting up an unauthorised kitchen shed, a portion of which collapsed killing three construction labourers working at the adjacent site on the Old Madurai Road in the city on Thursday.

A portion of the kitchen shed, including the compound wall and generators caved in burying the workers in a trench that was being dug up at the adjacent site for raising pile foundations for a new commercial building. Three more workers were injured in the accident.

Speaking to The Hindu, Mr. Thandapani said notices would be issued to the owners of the hotel and the adjacent commercial site.

The owner of the construction site, Kamlesh Patel, will also be issued a notice for failing to adhere to safety norms.
