On Monday, a major fire broke out at a Bindal showroom in West Delhi’s Rajouri Garden. The incident came hours after another major fire at a Delhi Transport Department office gutted its state-of-the-art operational command centre and destroyed several essential documents, officials said. However, no one was injured in the incident. Latching on to the incident, the BJP accused the AAP government of being behind the blaze to "hide its failures".

According to the Fire Department, it received a call about the blaze at 8.38 am, following which eight fire tenders rushed to the spot. The fire started from the server room on the first floor and later spread to eight other rooms located on the same floor of the building, Director of Delhi Fire Services Atul Garg said.

The blaze later spread to the second floor of the building, he said. In total, 26 fire tenders were rushed to the spot, he added. The fire affected a "small portion" of the office premises in which state-of-the-art operational command and control centre was gutted, Special commissioner (Transport) K K Dahiya said.
