The shocking negligence that led to the catastrophic fire at the TRP game zone has been laid bare by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) report. The tragedy, which occurred on May 25 and led to 27 deaths, has been attributed to the negligence of the game zone operators and various Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) officials.

According to the SIT's preliminary findings, the operators went ahead with welding work for a proposed 'snow park' despite knowing the materials were highly inflammable. The report, part of an affidavit submitted by the Gujarat government to the High Court, lays out a grim picture of ignored safety measures and inadequate fire preparedness.

The jury-rigged game zone infrastructure, single entry/exit passage, and neglected fire safety protocols compounded the disaster, the report revealed. Starkly, seven officers from RMC, the Roads and Buildings Department, and the police have been suspended, with more stringent actions expected as further findings emerge.
