UP: Three dead in Durga puja pandal fire in Bhadohi


Bhadohi: Three people died and several got injured in a fire that broke out in a Durga Puja Pandal at Aurai town of Uttar Pradesh’s Bhadohi district, late on Sunday night.

Around 150 people were present during the Durga Puja aarti when the fire broke out. Following the fire incident, nearly 52 people were admitted to different hospitals. People having 30-40% burns have been admitted to trauma centres and all the patients are in stable conditions, District Magistrate of Bhadohi, Gaurang Rathi said.

Two boys (aged 12 and 10) and a 47-year-old woman lost their lives in the fire tragedy, Bhadohi DM informed ANI on Monday. Earlier, it was reported that one child had died in the incident.

On Sunday night, the SP of Bhadohi Anil Kumar informed about the incident saying that the fire broke out at the time of aarti, news agency ANI reported.

“At around 9 pm, a fire broke out at Durga Puja pandal in Bhadohi as it was the time of aarti. Around 10-15 people were injured and were immediately rushed to the hospital,” the SP said.

A halogen light at the pandal overheated, causing an electric wire to catch fire at multiple points simultaneously. Soon the fire engulfed the wooden scaffolding and the tent, Rathi said

The main cause behind the fire incident is suspected to be short circuit and the investigation is happening in the case, the DM said.
