Indore: 

A fire broke out in a two-storey building in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore in the early hours of this morning. 

Seven people, including two women were charred to death in the blaze and nine people have been rescued so far, of which five have been hospitalised, police said.

The fire erupted due to a short circuit in main electric supply system in the basement of the building located in Swarn Bagh colony in Indore at around 3.10 this morning when residents were asleep. The fire then spread to two-wheelers and vehicles parked there, rapidly burning down the whole building.

The building’s owner Ansar Patel has been detained by the police and a case has been registered against him for causing death by negligence, as no fire safety equipment was installed in the building which had one flat on each floor

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan offered his condolences.

“I pray to God to give place to the departed souls at his feet and give strength to the family members to bear this deep sorrow and to give speedy recovery to the injured,” the Chief Minister tweeted.
