Mumbai: As Mumbai continues its battle against COVID-19, a builder has turned a Good Samaritan by handing over a 19-storey newly constructed building.

The builder who has been identified as Mehul Sanghvi of Sheeji Sharan Developers reportedly handed over the building to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to convert it into a COVID-19 facility.

“We decided to do this willingly after discussing with tenants. The building is being used as a quarantine centre for COVID-19 patients,” NDTV quoted Mehul Sanghvi as saying.

The building which has 130 flats is located on SV Road in Malad.
