SummaryRaju, Rubina and Sonu do not know each other, but the fire that engulfed the five storey Surya Sen Market here leaving 19 dead today has strung them together in their misfortune of having a breadwinner snatched away.

local people questioned why fire-fighting arrangements were not made.

"What was the government doing all these years? Why did the government not ensure that a proper fighting system was installed?" a local man, Rajat, asked.

The local people said that after the fire at the AMRI Hospital in December 2011 which claimed 94 lives, the authorities were urged to implement proper safety measures at the market, but it fell on deaf ears.
