One person, who had allegedly stored crackers and fireworks ten times more than the permit, was on Sunday booked by police in connection with the Puttingal Devi Temple fire tragedy in Kollam.
Attingal police said they have registered a case against the licensee, Surendran, who had stored about 150 kgs of crackers and fireworks material at the storehouse without valid permission.
Surendran had license to store only about 15 kg, police said.
“It is a clear violation of license. So far no arrests have been made,” police said.
Meanwhile, forensic experts, police and fire force took evidence from the accident spot.
