Kochi's illegal Maradu flats demolished in seconds through controlled blasts

The top court had directed demolition of the flats within 138 days, a timeline given by the Kerala government.

The court order past year was a shock to more than 300 apartment owners.

"I think none will now dare to violate rules for their vested interests", said Emmanuel, who watched the demolition of the apartment complexes live on TV.

The government is responsible for this situation.

Like Saturday, when two unauthorised flat complexes were razed down, on Sunday, the first of the two flat complex - Jain Coral Cove, at the press of a trigger at 11.01 a.m was turned into a cloud of dust in a matter of seconds.

Jain Coral Cove has the maximum number of housing units among the illegally built apartments. Two complexes, H2O Holy Faith and Alfa Serene, were demolished on Saturday.

The demolition of the third building will be done on Sunday.

According to reports, over 350 kg of explosives filled in the structures were blasted through controlled implosion.

The interior walls had been removed in a pre-demolition work, leaving it a concrete shell.

Nearly 2,000 people in nearby residential areas were evacuated prior to the demolition, which was witnessed by scores of people.

"It was a ideal implosion". However, the amount of debris that has fallen into water is yet to be estimated.

Kochi City Police Commissioner Vijay Sakhare said the mission was a huge success.

"It was an absolute success". Authorities in the southern state of Kerala have demolished two high-rise apartment developments yesterday, the BBC reported. And no harm to any human life or any animal life. "No land in the adjacent area was damaged", said the police officer.

Regarding other issues, including setting up of one court to deal with pleas filed by buyers to initiate appropriate proceedings against the builder, the court asked them to file proper applications.

However, some others said the buildings should not have been demolished as the owners had bought the flats spending their lifetime savings.

The Holy Faith H2O controlled implosion was carried out by Mumbai Based Edifice Engineers in association with South Africa's Jet Demolishers. The apartments built violates the coastal regulation area norms and was demolished on the order of the apex court.

With this, three of the four apartment complexes ordered to be demolished by the Supreme Court in September 2018 have been razed down.

The CRZ norms do not allow any construction to take place within 200 metres of any coast in Kerala.

The prohibitory orders that were clamped in the area will remain imposed for the day. There were apprehensions earlier on how the demolition would affect these houses.
