  • Keralite woman among 17 killed in Delhi hotel blaze

Delhi Hotel and Restaurant Owners' Association's vice-president Balan Mani said on Tuesday that all rules and regulations were followed in Karol Bagh's Hotel Arpit Palace, where at least 17 people were killed in a blaze.

Fire officer Vipin Kenta said the two people had jumped off the hotel on Gurudwara Road in panic when the fire broke out early on Tuesday. Most people jumped out of the upper floors of the hotel to save their lives.

As per the deputy chief fire officer Sunil Chaudhary, 26 fire tenders were rushed to the spot and also said that 25 personnel were evacuated from the hotel.

Thirty-five people were rescued and those injured were taken to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.

The hotel comprises a basement, a ground floor and four other floors. At least 35 rooms were booked by one family who were in the city for a special function.

The fire has already raised questions about safety in poorly regulated budget hotels in the country.

Authorities appeared to have been negligent in enforcing building laws in the surrounding area, Delhi's urban development minister Satyendar Jain said. 45 people have been rescued from the burning hotel, whereas 8 people are said to be in critical condition.

Police said they were investigating the cause. According to eyewitnesses, most deaths were caused due to suffocation.

Delhi health minister Satyendra Kumar Jain has declared the blaze at Hotel Arpit Palace as a case of negligence, saying that the hotel had flouted rules by being allowed to build six floors instead of the six constructed.

Unconfirmed reports say the death toll is likely to rise as numerous injured jumped from the burning building to the ground.
