In Bagri market Kolkata, a fire erupted again more than 30hrs after it broke. The fire breakout on Sunday completely gutted more than 400 shops in Bagri Market.
“We’ve reached from ground to top floor and have succeeded in containing the fire but due to the presence of chemical there, it’s difficult to contain pockets of fire inside. Now 35 fire tenders and 250 firemen are here and operation is going on continuously,” A fire department official said.
“The government repeatedly urged the market authorities for safety measures. If they heeded the administration, the disaster could have been avoided,” Partha Chatterjee said.
“If there is any foul play, the persons concerned should be probed and punished,” left leader Sujan Chakrabarty said.
