Tales of horror from Anaj Mandi blaze; 17 dead identified

New Delhi, Dec 9 (UNI) The four-storey building in congested walled city area of the national capital, which was gutted on Sunday, proved to be a death trap for its occupants.
It left at least 43 factory workers sleeping inside dead. They had succumbed to burn injuries and also after inhaling smoke.
Over 50 others were injured and 15 are said to have been from Bihar's Samastipur village.
The bag manufacturing unit that caught fire ostensibly due to short circuit was suspected to have been running illegally in the residential area.
The locality made news for all wrong reasons.
'Anaj Mandi' for all practical purpose, located near an old cinema hall called Filmistan is also no longer a hub of grain market. It is only a residential area with makeshift working units and godowns.
Of the 43 people killed in the horrific fire near Rani Jhansi Road, 34 died at the Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan Hospital. Only 17 have been identified till now.
Hospital sources told UNI on Monday that a total of 54 people were brought here affected by the fire accident, out of which 34 have died.
The sources said that 14 people are still admitted to hospitalis and are being treated. Most of the dead and injured hail from Bihar. A man with more than 50 per cent injuries is in a very critical condition.
''Two of the injured were discharged after treatment on Sunday, while two have been discharged today,'' the sources said.
