Situated in sector 15 Koperkhairane, Natraj bar and Shubham palace is the same bar that came up in a residential complex despite massive protests of the residents of the building due to the alleged influential connections of the owner with authorities and leaders. And after years of its unethical establishments in its buildings in the heart of Koperkhairane, the hotel again came in the news for the wrong reasons as fire was reported from Natraj restaurant and bar. Even though the real reason of the fire is being investigated, preliminary report indicated that the fire started after the short circuit in the signboard of the bar. The fire took place at around lunch time in the bar. Shubham palace has HDFC bank situated on the ground floor of the building along with Shubham photo studio on the ground floor.
