Over 55 Karol Bagh hotels shut for fire safety violations
The Delhi government has closed 58 guest houses in Karol Bagh after their fire safety certificates were cancelled for violations.
The action was taken after inspection of 80 such establishments, Delhi Fire Services said here on Saturday.
The action comes within a week of a massive fire at a hotel in Karol Bagh, which claimed 17 lives and injured many others.
Delhi Home Minister Satyendar Jain said the fire department will intensify drive across the city to locate illegal constructions and hotels violating fire safety norms to prevent recurrence of any such incident.
