FIR registered in Vijayawada hospital fire incident
At least 11 people died, and over 30 sustained injuries after a fire broke out in the makeshift hospital at the Swarna Palace Hotel in Vijayawada. An FIR has been registered against the accused by the Tahsildar and incident commander.
The management of Ramesh Hospitals and the Swarna Palace hotel reportedly avoided repairing the electrical defects in the lodge due to massive amounts. The station fire officer has claimed that nine out of 11 died due to suffocation, and the remaining two died due to severe injuries.
Jairam Naik, the fire safety director, said the alarm bell did not ring at the time of the fire incident, and hence the back door was opened lately.
It is also alleged that the Ramesh Hospitals management did not procure NOC before converting the hotel into the Covid-19 facility center.
