DK Shivakumar wrote, “Adherence to appropriate safety measures and precautions is of utmost importance for the prevention of untoward fire disasters in high-traffic entertainment spaces like shopping malls, gaming, and adventure zones across Bengaluru. I have written to the BBMP Commissioner with instructions to implement fail-safe measures in recreational places across the city as soon as possible while also making periodic checks mandatory to avoid fire mishaps.”
