A heart-rending incident happened today early morning at Secunderabad where 11 people died due to a huge fire in a timber godown. The fire was caught because of a short circuit around 4 am.
As per the data, 11 workers were killed, 4-5 workers have severe injuries and were admitted in a critical condition at the Gandhi Hospital.
The killed people were the migrant labors from Chapra District in Bihar. These workers were trapped by the fire while they were asleep.
Police Commissioner C V Anand stated that these labors were residing in the godown as they were unable to find a room. He later added that keeping scrap of plastic and electrical cables is illegal. The fire became massive because the godown materials easily caught fire.
The Commissioner also stated that the owner of the godown will be charged if found accountable behind this massive fire.
The godown is located at Bansilalpet of Bhoiguda.
Sharing deep concern on this matter, PM Narendra Modi announced a 2 lakh of relaxation for each victim family under PM’s National Relief Fund.
The Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao also promised 5 lakh relief for each of those families whose bread earner were taken away in this drastic incident.
