Abbass Rashid Butt | 8 years ago | Reply The damaged was caused by ignorance of officials who did not notice the illegal construction of Multi-Story building in congested area. The President of Anjuman-e-Tajaran wa Shahrian walled city Lahore Shahid Bilal appealed to higher authority that an FIR would be lodged against the owner of the building, TMO Ravi Town, DG walled city authority, and SHO Rang Mahal for the official negligence.
