According to authorities, a 19-year-old male was killed in the Gandhi Nagar market fire incident in New Delhi on Thursday.
Shehnawaj, the victim, worked at the burned store on Wednesday and has been identified.
Aftab, one of the other employees who had worked at the clothing store for 12 years, claimed that he and 4 to 5 additional employees observed smoke coming from the store as they returned from the main road.
At roughly 5.37 pm, they arrived at the store through Janata Gali, a different entrance to the store.
Aftab discovered his brother Shehnawaj was imprisoned inside, and he instantly phoned the owner. The gang reportedly also heard Shehnawaj rapping on the door. When the employees instructed Shehnawaj to go upstairs, they tried to pick up the locks but could not find him. The fire department crew just discovered the deceased this morning on the second story.
The fire brigade reported on Wednesday night that the blaze that started in a store in Gandhi Nagar’s textile market had been put out.
“The classification of the fire was given as medium. There are now 28 firefighters on duty. The fire has been put out and is only affecting the upper levels, “said SK Dua, deputy chief fire officer.
At 5:36 pm on Wednesday, Delhi Fire Service received information about a fire that had started in Gandhi Nagar market.
