New Delhi, Nov 13 IANS | 2 years ago

Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan Wednesday said here he has ordered a probe into the row over Campa Cola housing complex in Mumbai, and that the state government is studying the Supreme Court order suspending its demolition.

"We have ordered the probe and are studying the order. The occupants have got some relief and the state government has sought legal opinion from Attorney General G.E. Vahanvati on the issue," Chavan said in the national capital.

The Supreme Court Wednesday ordered suspension of the demolition of 96 flats of the Campa Cola housing complex in Mumbai till May 31, 2014. The demolition was to start Wednesday.

The apex court earlier this year said that these flats have to be pulled down because of violation of laws by the builders. The flats were constructed three decades ago.
