Desist from 'fire acrobatics': Delhi Police warns pubs

New Delhi: The Delhi Police has asked restaurants and pubs across the national Capital to desist from "fire acrobatics" without permission, in the wake of a massive fire at a Mumbai rooftop pub that claimed 14 lives.
The fire tenders will be on patrolling duty around popular party hubs to ensure that there is no delay in helping people in case of an untoward incident, a top official of the department said.
"The focus is that there should not be unauthorised amusement activities in restaurants and pubs that require the usage of fire," said Dependra Pathak, chief spokesperson, Delhi Police and special commissioner of police (Traffic).
"Generally people don't take permission for such kinds of acrobatics or amusement activities. But even they require permission," he said.
Pathak said that the licensing department of the Delhi Police has written to the Delhi Fire Service (DFS) to carry out surprise checks to see that all fire safety norms are in place.
