Kolkata fire: AMRI director gets bail
Kolkata: The Calcutta High Court Thursday
granted bail to a director of AMRI Hospital, where over 90 people choked to death after a fire in the basement last December.
A division bench comprising Justices Asim Kumar Roy and
Ashim Kumar Ray granted bail to AMRI director S K Todi, who
has been in custody since December nine.
Of the total 13 accused, nine directors and four
employees, arrested on the charge of culpable homicide not
amounting to murder, 12 have so far been given bail.
Three other directors of the hospital are absconding. Only one official, Sajid Hussain, remains in custody.
A fire broke out in the basement of the hospital`s seven-
storey, centrally air-condition annexe building in the early
hours of December nine.
More than 90 people, mostly patients, were suffocated to
death from smoke that entered the floors through AC ducts.
