GUWAHATI, July 24 - The Kamrup (Metro) district administration today ordered closure of the Accoland Amusement Park at Rani citing lapses on the part of the park�s management on public health and safety-related issues.

It is noteworthy that the district administration had last week ordered an inquiry after reports emerged of some visitors complaining of skin allergy due to alleged contaminated water at the Accoland Amusement Park at Rani.

In an order issued today, the administration said that it has gone through the inquiry report submitted by Ranjit Konwar, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup (Metro), and Jituraj Gogoi, Assistant Commissioner, besides individual reports submitted by different officials of line departments concerned regarding the quality of the water of the pools and existing infrastructure of the Accoland Amusement Park.

�It is evident from the reports that there are lapses on the part of the management of Accoland Amusement Park, Rani, Patgaon, causing imminent danger to the health and life of the people, especially the children and the youth coming to the park. I am of the considered opinion that if continuation of the operation of the Accoland Amusement Park is allowed unhindered it will cause a serious threat to public health and life and can become an uncharacteristic example of man-made disaster,� said the order issued by Virendra Mittal, Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup (Metro).

Mittal added that considering the reports, the administration has directed the management of Accoland Amusement Park �to stop operation of the park with immediate effect until the recommendations of the inquiry reports of the departments concerned are compiled and any other aspect needed for safety of public health and life is taken care of.�

The order has been issued under the Disaster Management Act, 2005.
