As per news report of The Indian Express, At least 27 people died and several others were injured when fire engulfed a four-storey commercial building near Mundka Metro station in Outer Delhi. “It was a massive fire, many people were killed, and their bodies were charred to the extent that they could not be identified. We have deployed help to identify the missing and the dead,” Kejriwal said. Several people were trapped inside the building, with the police saying that there was just one exit. Those who were stuck inside broke windows and fashioned ropes out of clothes to escape. Fire officials battled the heat and smoke when they first reached the building and the real extent of the tragedy became clear only late into the night when charred bodies were discovered.
