A major fire broke out in a defunct textile mill at Dadar in central Mumbai, enveloping the area in thick smoke even as fire brigade officials suspected foul play in the incident. Mumbai Mayor Shraddha Jadav also expressed doubt over the fire at Gold Mohur Mill, one of the textile mills to be revived by National Textile Corporation through a partnership with the private sector. At the time of her visit despite speaking to fire brigade officials, the Mayor said that the cause of the fire was not known. MP Mohan Rawale also visited the fire sight and raised several questions with the fire brigade. Witnesses and nearby residents said that the mill went on fire under questionable circumstances. Some even blamed the caretakers for the fire. As many as 22 fire engines and ten water tankers were pressed into service to extinguish the blaze that erupted at around noon. It took over five hours to bring the flames under control. The nearby areas were vacated following the fire as the mill is located in a commercial-cum-residential area. No casualties have been reported as the mill was shut down. With bureau inputs, Vasuda Dhumak for NMTV News.
