A police constable carrying a woman on his shoulders from a restaurant which was reduced to ashes during Kamla Mill fire tragedy became talk of the town. A total of fourteen people lost their lives in the incident.
The constable in the picture is Sudarshan Shinde who was one of the first to reach on the spot along with his others colleagues.
Brave Sudarshan helped to bring three victims out from the charred complex. He climbed seven floors each time to bring them down.
“When I reached upstairs, everything was burnt and charred. When I reached down, I could hear exploding sounds. Which I feel were of alcohol bottles and gas cylinders. There were several hookahs that added to the intensity of the flames. I could see only one woman coughing. The rest, I believe, may have died of suffocation,” said Shinde while speaking to DNA.
Not only him but also the security guards of Times Now helped the victims.
