Power connections cut in Campa Cola compound by BMC officials.

Mumbai, June 23 ( ANI ): Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) officials cut all power connections of the Campa Cola compound on Monday.

Camp Cola Society residents had yesterday agreed to let the BMC cut power, water and gas supplies in the Supreme Court-declared illegal apartments.

The decision to end the 18-month-long stand-off came after Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithiraj Chavan assured the affected residents that if they cooperated with the law and the system, then he will definitely find a solution to their problem.

The residents had on June 22 submitted a mercy petition to President Pranab Mukherjee to come up with a solution.

Political leaders from the BJP and the MNS have extended their sympathies to the residents' demand.

The BMC had filed a police complaint against the flat owners for trying to prevent officials from implementing the Supreme Court order to raze the illegal building.

The BMC was supposed to begin the building's demolition on Friday, by disconnecting power, water and gas supplies to all illegal flats. The residents, however, blocked the attempts of the authorities to enter the compound. ( ANI )
