In a heart-wrenchingly tragic incident, a massive fire engulfed four-storey Takshashila Complex in Sarthana area of Surat, leaving 20 teenage students at a coaching centre dead. While a few jumped to death from the top floor, some were suffocated.
Surat police on Saturday morning arrested two persons and filed an FIR against three people in connection with the tragedy. The builders of the complex — Harshal Vekaria and Jignesh and owner of the coaching centre Bhargav Bhutani are among those booked.
While the aggrieved family pursues justice for losing their innocent loved ones, the loss can never be reversed. Some of the students were even expecting their class 12 results today.
How could this tragedy have been avoided? Who should be held responsible? Will the families ever come to terms with this loss?
