KAMALA MILLS FIRE

massive fire broke out at a building in Kamala Mills Compound in the Lower Parel area of Mumbai. So far, 14 people have been reported dead and several others injured. Majority of those killed are women, according to civic authorities. The fire appears to have started at a restaurant on the top floor of the building, although the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained. Those injured were rushed to King Edward Memorial Hospital and Scion Hospital. Fire-fighters took more than three hours to douse the huge flames that leapt up in central Mumbai’s nightlife hub. The fire brigade found that illegal constructions exacerbated the fire, which finally brought the restaurants down. The building in Mumbai houses commercial establishments including news channels have has to stop broadcasting. The fire broke out shortly after midnight on the third floor of the four-storeyed building on Senapati Bapat Marg, the commercial hub of Mumbai. Police have booked Hitesh Sanghvi, Jigar Sanghvi and Abhijeet Manka of C Grade Hospitality, which manages the pub, along with others, under various charges including culpable homicide not amounting to murder. They are also charged IPC sections 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others). Two of those booked have been detained.  Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis Tweeted that five junior officials of BMC have been suspended but beyond that if “they or owners are found responsible for losses of lives, they will be booked under IPC. Guilty spared.”
