A district administration official said that Nirav Modi’s sea-facing illegal bungalow in Maharashtra’s Alibaug which estimated to cost over Rs 100 crore was destroyed with a huge quantity of explosives today.
Authorities claimed the 33,000 square foot luxurious bungalow is illegally constructed that has violated coastal regulation zone (CRZ) norms as well as the state’s regulation.
According to the sources the foundation of the bungalow was so strong that the authorities had to struggle to bring it down with heavy machinery which would have taken months.
To complete the process earlier, they decided to demolish the building through a controlled explosion by dynamite. Raigad district collector Vijay Suryawanshi informed that the demolition was successful.
The engineers used excavators to drill into the thick concrete pillars of the bungalow to create space to fix the detonators. The next step was to install the explosives and a technical team carried out it.
The demolition team revealed footage which shows the luxurious structure is collapsing in a cloud of dust. The bungalow was built by Nirav Modi to throw parties and host product shows, near a forested Kihim beach. In the bungalow, there also had a swimming pool, resort-like slides, and expensive fittings.
The action was taken after Bombay High Court order to take action against illegal bungalows. Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi are the main accused persons in the 13,000 crore Punjab National Bank scam.
