LUCKNOW:  Seven officials, including an IAS officer, has been suspended for alleged faults in the construction of an apartment at Gomtinagar here during the previous BSP regime.

"On the directives of the Chief Minister, seven officers posted in the Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) at the time of the construction of River View Apartment have been suspended late yesterday night," a spokesman of the Housing Department said here.

The CM has asked Commissioner (Lucknow division) Kumar Kamlesh to conduct an inquiry to fix accountability of the suspended officials, he said.

Orders have been issued to blacklist the construction agency as well as the consultant involved in the project, he added.

Those suspended include the then LDA Secretary Mani Prasad Mishra (IAS), the then Chief Engineer S N Tripathi, the then Superintending Engineer R N Singh, town planner Ravi Jain and Junior Engineers Sunil Srivastava and Kailash Singh, said the spokesman.

The CM had recently visited the apartment and found a number of anomalies in its construction, including seepage of water in the basement, he added.
