Accoland, an amusement and water park, located along Rani Road, near BSF Headquarters at Patgaon area on the outskirts of Guwahati, has reopened.
It was shut down for an indefinite period after Kamrup (M) district administration in July, after a complaint was filed the water used in the amusement park was contaminated.
The probe was initiated after a woman from Barpeta lodged a complaint against the amusement park.
Following the complaint, Kamrup (M) Deputy Commissioner Virendra Mittal, a team of officials led by Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Ranjit Konwar conducted a raid at the park and detected a number of anomalies.
After the raid ADC Ranjit Konwar had reportedly said, “During investigation, we have detected a number of anomalies in the park. The quality of the water used in the park is not good, especially the water that is being used for the ‘sliding’ in the park. The water is sourced from a dirty pond located at the back of the park.” He also said that the high structures of the park were also violating norms.
It may be mentioned that earlier, an inspection was carried out in Accoland in October 2017 and a number of recommendations were made at that time. “But it has come to light now that the recommendations were not followed by the park authority,” Konwar had reportedly said.
The Kamrup (M) Deputy Commissioner (DC) ordered Accoland authority to keep the amusement and water park closed until they can make the park fit for use by visitors with all proper facilities.
