Mundka building catches fire

Two days after company owners Harish Goel and brother Varun Goel’s arrest, the Delhi police on Sunday arrested the absconding building owner Manish Lakra in connection with the fire that broke out yesterday and claimed 27 lives.

The ground, first and second floors of the three-storey building were occupied by a single company whose owners – Harish Goel and Varun Goel – were also arrested by Delhi Police.

A team of Delhi Police has arrested Manish Lakra. Raids were done and he was nabbed, Deputy Commissioner of Police Sameer Sharma said. The police conducted multiple raids in Delhi and Haryana and finally zeroed in on his location, he said.

Earlier, an FIR has been registered against company owners under sections 304 (punishment for culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide), 120 (concealing design to commit offense punishable with impris­onment) and 34 (Common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.

Lakra, a resident of Mundka village, resided on the top floor of the building and went absconding after the incident that claimed the lives of 27 people. However, it has not yet been confirmed whether or not he was present in the building at the time of the incident.

 Two days after the fire incident at Delhi’s Mundka, the Delhi Fire Service Chief Officer Atul Garg on Saturday said that there were many major loopholes in the building that caught fire. The building was not approved and had no Non-Objection Certificate (NOC), he said.

Explaining the loopholes in the building, Garg said that the fire had reportedly occurred due to an electricity blast. There was only one exit gate and no fire protection. He also said that it was overloaded with a lot of equipment and there was no proper compartment. A lot of plastic was used in the factory, he said.

Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a yellow warning in Delhi as the heatwave is witnessed in several parts of the national capital. Heatwaves in sections of the national capital witnessed temperatures of 44-45 degrees Celsius on Thursday as moisture-bearing easterly winds made their way to hot and dry westerly winds.

The maximum temperature at Delhi’s base station, Safdarjung Observatory, reached 42.5 degrees Celsius. On Wednesday, the temperature was 41.4 degrees Celsius. The maximum temperatures in Najafgarh (44.7°C), Mungeshpur (45.4°C), and Pitampura (44°C) were all at least five degrees Celsius above usual.

A heatwave was predicted for Delhi starting on May 8, however, the city was cushioned from it by easterly winds ushered in by cyclone Asani. Last week, irregular rain, thunderstorms, and strong winds provided some relief from the blistering heat.

According to weather experts, temperatures in isolated areas can reach 46-47 degrees Celsius. This is the first heatwave in May so far, which has been largely helped by Western disturbances.

Delhi had a hot and dry March, with zero precipitation compared to the typical 15.9 mm. In April, there was only 0.3 mm of rain, compared to a monthly normal of 12.2 mm. Several regions of Delhi saw a heatwave at the end of the month, with temperatures reaching 46 and 47 degrees Celsius.
