THE death toll in the Mundka inferno may further increase as search operation teams have found more charred remains from the second floor of the ill-fated four-storey building. Fatalities currently stand at 27.

“The death toll may likely go up,” Delhi Fire Service chief Atul Garg said on Saturday.

The top fire department official also shared a picture of the remains that were found just minutes ago by the NDRF team present at the scene of the blaze that erupted on Friday.

As many as 27 people were killed in the major fire incident on Friday afternoon while 12 sustained injuries.

The recovered bodies were yet to be identified and the help of forensic teams will be utilised for the purpose.

It was difficult to establish whether the charred remains were of a man or a woman.

Scenes of chaos prevailed for the whole night at the Sanjay Gandhi hospital where the bodies were shifted and the relatives of the missing persons kept arriving to locate their loved ones.

As per the latest reports, the NDRF teams are still conducting the search operation.
