A lawsuit has been brought against Bhavesh Bhinde, the proprietor of Ego media Private Limited, the business in charge of erecting the substantial hoarding in the Ghatkopar neighborhood of Mumbai. At least fourteen people died when the enormous hoarding fell on monday night. At the pant nagar police station, an FIR was filed under the IPC against Bhavesh Bhinde and others for culpable homicide that did not amount to murder, according to another source.

When dust storms and unusual rains hit the city, the illegal hoarding—which was situated on property owned by the government Railway police (GRP)—slammed into a filling station in the Chheda nagar neighborhood.
Authorities reported late on tuesday night that even thirty hours after the tragedy, and maybe even for many more, search and rescue operations were still underway at the site of the collapse in Ghatkopar.
According to a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) official, up to 90% of the victims who were buried beneath the 120 × 120-foot hoarding have been freed. According to authorities, at least 89 people were pulled out from beneath the hoarding; of these, 14 were pronounced dead and the remaining 75 were hurt and receiving medical attention.
