New Delhi (New York) – Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal ordered a magisterial inquiry on Saturday to investigate the cause and establish accountability in the Mundka fire, which claimed at least 27 lives.Such exercises have yielded no benefits in the past few years.In the last five years, Delhi has seen three major fires, one in the northwest Delhis Bawana province, which killed at least 17 workers; another in the Karol Baghs Hotel Arpit Palace, which killed 17 people; and in central Delhis Anaj Mandi, which killed 43 people.The government was able to persuade a magistrate to investigate any investigation, and the reports were also submitted, but there has been no word on the measures taken against the officials or the organizations.Officials also reported that a high-power commission established to investigate the Bawana factory fire had discovered that there was a malfunction in the organization that led to the disaster.The task force blamed five entities: Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation, the recruitment department, Delhi Fire Services, North Delhi Municipal Corporation, and Delhi Police.The Delhi government had accepted the study in its entirety and even recommended that the commission be directed to find individual officers in each department or agency involved.However, government sources confirmed that it never heard from the individual officers that were involved in the shooting that they were identified and that any action was taken against them. The division, which is not under the UD administration, is now part of Delhi Police, and the other businesses, though they are formally part of the department, operate at a different level, according to the official.The commission that prosecuted the Hotel Aprit Palace fire also blammed Delhi Police, Delhi Fire Services, and the north corporation for failures, and they urged government to take immediate action against individual officials.In the Anaj Mandi fire, Delhi's revenue minister had ordered an investigation.The conclusions of both investigations are uncertain. The municipal corporations are responsible for ensuring that no commercial activity is occurring in any building.According to a source, the power and water departments should in theory disconnect connections to prevent such activities from occurring.According to a North Corporation official, individual officials are particularly liable.
