The tragic fire in Kuwait, which claimed the lives of 49 people, primarily Indian laborers, has been called the worst building fire in the history of the nation. The incident prompted a crackdown on housing infractions by the local government.

Forty-five Indians were among those who died on Wednesday when the fire engulfed a seven-story building at Mangaf in southern Kuwait that housed foreign workers. Kuwait’s health minister Ahmad Al-Awadhi said 56 injured people were taken to local hospitals.

PM Modi also announced ex-gratia relief of Rs 2 lakh to the families of deceased Indian nationals from the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.
