26 dead in Delhi’s Mundaka fire! Casualties have increased due to a single narrow staircase to enter and exit the multi-storey building – News18 Bangla
#NewDelhi: At least 26 people were burnt to death in a devastating multi-storey fire near Delhi’s Mundaka metro station on Friday afternoon. The fire department claimed that one of the reasons behind the destruction of the multi-storey building which was burnt in the fire was the way to enter and exit the multi-storey building. The entrance and exit are the same. As a result, many people were trapped in fear and panic but could not get out easily. One of the main reasons for the loss of life was the negligence of the construction of the building, a senior fire official said on Saturday. The multi-storey building did not have the No Objection Certificate required from the fire department, the official said.

The fire started on Friday on the first floor of a multi-storey building where a CCTV camera and router manufacturing and assembling company office is located. The owner of the company, Harish Goel and his brother Varun Goel were earlier arrested. They were arrested on Saturday, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) Sameer Sharma said. A case has also been filed against the owner of the multi-storey building, police sources said.
As seen in various videos spread on social media, trapped people are crying out for help. Others are seen jumping from the multi-storey building in a desperate attempt to escape the fire. “The rescue operation is over. There was only one way out of the multi-storey building. That is why the death toll is so high, “said Atul Gorg, director of the Delhi Fire Service.
Atul Garg said some more burnt bodies were recovered on Saturday morning and the death toll could rise to 30. According to officials, there was only one staircase to enter and exit the multi-storey building. That ladder is also a narrow ladder. As a result, it was difficult to escape quickly to save lives. It is learned that 29 people have not been found yet in the fire incident.
