The Cama and Albless Hospital, one of the sites of the 26/11 terror attacks, has asked for permission to increase the height of its surrounding wall citing security reasons.
The hospital, a grade–II heritage structure, will write to the Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee (MHCC) asking them to consider the proposal.
After the attacks, the police undertook a survey and found the present compound wall “very low and a cause for concern from the security point of view”.
Shobna Tehra, superintendent of Cama Hospital said, “The current height is 5ft. We want it to be increased to 12ft so that we can put barbed wire on them.”
