Cafe Unplugged Courtyard issues clarification on ceiling collapse
New Delhi [India], Feb. 12 (ANI): Issuing a clarification on the incident of ceiling collapse, the Unplugged Courtyard on Sunday said it has nothing to do with the accident, adding that it took place next door in the Odeon sweet shop that had been vacant for over a decade.
"The property was locked by the landlord. When this happened we got all the guests evacuated from the premise along with staff to avoid any possible mishap," said Nitin Kapoor, Public Relations Officer, Unplugged Courtyard.
He also confirmed that there was no one inside the premise when they locked the venue.
The open-air rooftop wing of the Connaught Place restaurant collapsed last night, fuelling fears about the safety of the Capital's popular British-era shoppers' stop as a section of another building had caved in 10 days ago.
The NDMC has shut down the rooftop sections of 21 open-air restaurants after the previous incident at C Block. Unplugged was on the list too. (ANI)
