The police will arrest the owner of a building that collapsed in Faridabad on Wednesday, killing six people.

Sources said Faridabad Deputy Commissioner Praveen Kumar has directed sub-divisional magistrate Mukul Kumar to probe the cause of collapse.

Kotwali Police has registered an FIR against the owner of the department store Citi Market.

“We remained busy in identifying bodies and getting their postmortem done,” SHO Kotwali Ram Kumar said on Thursday, adding the owner will be arrested shortly.

Meanwhile, the two unknown dead bodies have been identified. They are of Ramu from Rae Bareli and Paras Ram, a local resident. Four bodies have been cremated.

Haryana’s minister for local bodies A.C. Chaudhary visited the accident site late on Wednesday.

The minister reportedly said his wife was shopping at the department store when it collapsed. However, she made a providential escape, the minister added.
