Hyderabad: Builder P. Krisham Raju, against whom a police case was filed post the mudslide which killed two on Tuesday, had rented out his building to OYO Homes without a license and illegally constructed an additional floor and a shed. 

P. Krishnam Raju owns the building on plot no. 9 of Singadikunta on Road No. 10 in Banjara Hills. Permission for the construction of the building was granted by the GHMC in 2008. However, the owner did not procure a permanent trade license before leasing it out to OYO Homes. A notice has been sent to the building owner, and it may lead to the seizure of the property. 

Mr Satyanarayana, the deputy municipal commissioner of the GHMC (Circle 10-B), said “The entire building has been rented out to OYO Homes, and the regularisation of the building has been pending since 2008. The owner applied for a provisional license, which is valid for only three months, but the building does not have a trade license. This goes against the GHMC’s Building Usage Act. A closure notice will be served to the builder.” 

He added that as per the permissions issued, a building with stilts plus three floors was to have been constructed. But the owner has illegally built an extra floor and a shed. 

During the construction of the building, the builder dumped the excavated soil near his plot, in the vicinity of some huts. On Monday evening, the rains dislodged the loose soil, causing a mudslide which destroyed the huts and killed two people.
