Kochi: The officials probing the fire at Brahmapuram have questioned the staff of the solid waste treatment plant. The officials quizzed the staff, including those employed by Zonta Infratech, who were on duty at the plant when the fire broke out.
Meanwhile, the police have examined the CCTV footage retrieved from the plant premises to confirm whether there is any foul play behind the fire.
The National Green Tribunal (NGT) directed the chief secretary to undertake departmental-level action against officials responsible for the fire.
"Apart from the above, we direct the chief secretary, Kerala, to fix accountability of the officers concerned for such gross failures and initiate action under criminal law as well as by way of departmental proceedings, following due process, and place the same on the domain within two months," the tribunal said.
