Six people are feared dead after a huge fire broke out in a building in central Kolkata’s Strand Road on Monday evening.
Senior ministers and police officers have reached the spot and firefighters are trying to put out the blaze.
The fire started on the 13th floor of the New Koila Ghat Building, an office building next to the Hooghly river, around 6:30 pm.
The building houses railway ticketing offices and reports said online bookings have been hit with the power being switched off.
“Can’t say how many people have died yet,” minister Firhad Hakim said.
More details are awaited.
