New Delhi: A team of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has reached the spot to assist in the rescue operation at Mundka in the national capital where a massive fire engulfed a building killing 27 people and injuring 12 others.
As per latest reports, the operation is still underway and 27 fire tenders are on the spot.
