A fire broke out at Delhi’s Shastri Bhawan on Tuesday afternoon. At least seven fire tenders have been rushed to the spot to douse the flames.
Shastri Bhawan is a government building in central Delhi which is also from where the Ministry of Welfare – among other ministries – operates.
A fire had broken out here in July of 2017 as well. A short circuit was blamed for the fire at the time and it was quickly brought under control. Before this, a minor fire had broken out here in 2014 as well.
