The gambling zone in Gujarat's rajkot, where a horrific fire killed more than 20 people on saturday, did not have a No Objective Certificate (NOC) from the fire department, officials said. According to the information provided, the gaming zone had just one way for admission and departure. Furthermore, hundreds of gallons of fuel and diesel were stashed in various areas of the zone. This led the fire to spread quickly, destroying the whole structure.
So far, 27 individuals have been reported deceased, including nine children. The remains have been burnt beyond recognition, and dna samples from victims and families have been obtained for identification, according to members of the Special Investigation Team (SIT).


• The only entry-exit point in the gaming zone measured six to seven feet. On saturday, there was a huge crowd because there was a Rs 99 entrance promotion going on. Furthermore, there was only one means to leave the first floor. The TRP Game Zone contained over 2,000 gallons of fuel for generators and 1,000 to 1,500 litres of petrol for go-car racing.

• The gujarat government constituted a five-member SIT to investigate the event and has directed them to produce a report within 72 hours. They arrived in rajkot late saturday night and spoke with the local government. Additional DGP of police Subhash Trivedi, who leads the SIT, described the occurrence as "unfortunate and sad" and stated that an investigation will begin immediately to uncover those guilty and ensure that similar incidents do not occur again in the future.

• The rajkot District Magistrate stated that electrical issues might have caused the incident. However, the actual explanation has yet to be determined and is being explored.
