A builder was sent behind bars by revenue officials here on Tuesday over non-payment of Rs 147.59 crore due towards Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA), officials said.

A builder was arrested in Greater Noida on Wednesday in connection with illegal constructions in Shahberi village, where nine people had died in a twin-building collapse last year, police said.

The issue was first raised in the Allahabad High Court which had ordered for demotion of these towers. The builder then moved the apex court which stayed demolition but asked for refund. That was not done . It angered the Supreme Court
