27 Killed In A Fire At Delhi

May 14, Kathmandu- The death toll from a fire at a commercial building in the Indian capital, New Delhi, has risen to 27. The fire broke out in the Charatle building near the western railway station in Mundaka on Friday night.

Dozens of people were injured in the blaze, according to Indian media reports, but the death toll is expected to rise.

According to the Times of India, about 200 people were inside the building at the time of the fire and most of them jumped out of the building to save their lives. It is said that the rescue operation was hampered due to narrow streets and traffic jams.

The cause of the fire has not been identified yet. An investigation has been launched against the owners of the building, Harish Goyal and Varun Goyal, according to Indian police.

The Prime Minister's Relief Fund will provide ₹200,000 each to the deceased and ₹50,000 each for the treatment of the injured.
