Fire at Dadar building kills famous psychiatrist

Rajesh Bhapkar, an excise officer who lives in the flat below, said, “I was working out when someone from above came and informed me that there was smoke on the thirteenth floor. We went up, opened the window in the corridor and banged on the doors of the two flats but there was no response. Then we called the watchman, who said it was possibly smoke from a mosquito coil”

The residents were finally alerted by a stranger who rushed to the building after seeing smoke emanating from it. The fire brigade was then called while the watchman went to every flat to tell residents to evacuate.
