Kolkata: The City of Joy saw one of the most fearful fire incidents at New Market on Sunday when the shopping complex Citi Mart caught fire. According to the fire officials, the main cause of this massive fire was the lack of fire fighting arrangements at the shopping centre opposite Sriram Arcade. However, an official of the Citi Mart has totally denied this allegation.
John Mantosh, the owner of this shopping complex has said that there were adequate fire fighting arrangements at the Citi Mart. They were not used judiciously by the shopkeepers and the sales persons present at the spot at the time of the disaster. He has even kept the fire officials at his finger point for not being able to pit out the fire.
