A fire at a building in New Delhi has caused panic among those at the time of the fire.

Bimla, a person who did not give his last name, managed to escape.

“We ran here and there for about half an hour, but we couldn’t find a way. The boys broke the bottle and the people threw a rope from the bottom, so I slipped with the rope from the third floor. ”

Authorities said the fire started in a first-floor office and spread quickly. Two business owners were arrested.

When he sent condolences, Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised 200,000 rupees, or about $ 2,580, in compensation for the relatives of the victims.
