"We received a call at around 3:00 a.m. (local time) today about the incident. We rushed to the spot with five fire tenders. The fire had broken out in a room on the ground floor at the factory. It soon spread to other rooms. Lal's body was also found on the same (ground) floor," Delhi Fire Service chief Atul Garg told the media.
