New Delhi: A fire broke out on Monday at Shastri Bhavan in Central Delhi after a short circuit in an air conditioner, the police said. The fire, which broke out on the seventh floor, was doused within a few minutes and five fire tenders were rushed to the spot.

However, this is not the first time that fires have broken out in Shastri Bhavan. In 2014, a fire broke out on the same floor. Earlier in March this year, a minor fire broke out on the building’s third floor which houses the coal and fertiliser ministries.

 

Shastri Bhavan accommodates ministries of law, information and broadcasting, human resources development, corporate affairs, chemicals and petrochemicals.

The incidents comes just days after a major fire had broken out in Lok Nayak Bhavan, which houses several government offices such as the Enforcement Directorate, the National Commission for Schedules Castes among others.
