Fire safety measures

All markets, malls, auditoriums, housing complexes and educational institutions in the city must have in place the “minimum fire prevention arrangements”, including fire alarms and emergency exits, mayor Sovan Chatterjee said on Wednesday. Government-aided schools will get financial help to install fire-safety measures, added the mayor. Besides, it will be mandatory for complexes with more than 15 flats to install closed-circuit television sets.

After he died, his relatives attacked some doctors on duty, Group D staff and cops posted on the premises, and also damaged property. Two men were arrested.
