The massive fire which broke out in Kamala Mills, Mumbai has triggered hot discussion in the nation, leading to inspection and demolition of similar kinds of restaurants. We have also seen brave acts by cops and firefighters to rescue people. The video of Sudarshan Shinde, the policemen who turned a hero, went viral on the social media.

Sudarshan Shinde was one of the first to reach the spot, reports DNA. Holding one body on his shoulder, he pulled three victims at a time from the rubble. Eyewitnesses say that he climbed seven floors to bring down the bodies.

“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 to  DNA.

Apart from Shinde, there are several others who should be appreciated for their heroics. The security guards of Times Now, were in the forefront to save the victims. Times Now office was part of a trade house in Kamala Mills, and the buildings were interconnected.

Mumbai Police has facilitated Sudarshan Shinde for his brave act. The policeman said he was happy that he could save some lives, at the same time expressed woe over the incident which took 14 lives, reports Firstpost.
