Delhi fire: Karol Bagh's Hotel Arpit Palace in India goes up in flames | Daily Star

The fire broke out before dawn at the budget Hotel Arpit Palace in a congested part of central Delhi.

Seventeen people have died in a fire at a hotel in western New Delhi.

Local media reports said the woman and the child died as they tried to escape by jumping from a window.

Delhi minister Satyendra Jain told the NDTV news website that the Arpit Palace had built a fifth floor with a kitchen and a terrace, even though the owners only had permission to build four storeys.

Frequent raids by civic authorities to enforce building codes, fire safety measures and evacuation procedures have failed to curb violations in the rapidly expanding Indian capital, a city of more than 18 million people.

"There was wooden panelling on corridors because of which people could not use corridors to evacuate", another fire officer told reporters.

Footage showed flames leaping from the top floor.

Karol Bagh, filled with shops and budget hotels, is popular with tourists.

More than 20 fire tenders were rushed to the spot and rescue operations were underway, it said. "The two jumped off the building", Kenta said.

The dead includes a child.

Most of the victims - including many from a wedding party - were said to be sleeping when the fire broke out.

In 2017, 14 people were killed, also in Mumbai, when a huge blaze tore through a popular restaurant.

Four people were killed in November past year in a factory fire in Beadonpura area in Karol Bagh after a solvent used for laundering clothes spilt out on the floor accidentally.

Jain blamed the Municipal Corporation of Delhi for the violation and said a magisterial inquiry has been ordered.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government canceled its 4th anniversary celebration on Tuesday due to the fire, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia announced.
