Indian Embassy In Kuwait Issues Helpline Number After 40 Indians Killed

A total of 40 Indians were killed after a massive fire broke out at a building that housed migrant workers in southern Kuwait early on Wednesday. A total of 41 people died in the fire incident and as many as 42 others were hospitalised. The Indian Embassy in Kuwait responded on X and provided an emergency helpline number for assistance.
India's External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar responded to the incident, and said that he was "deeply shocked".
"Deeply shocked by the news of the fire incident in Kuwait city. There are reportedly over 40 deaths and over 50 have been hospitalized. Our Ambassador has gone to the camp. We are awaiting further information. Deepest condolences to the families of those who tragically lost their lives. Wish early and full recovery to those who have been injured. Our Embassy will render the fullest assistance to all concerned in this regard," his tweet read.
The Indian Embassy In Kuwait responded to the incident, and the post by the Foreign Affairs Minister, on X and said, "In connection with the tragic fire-accident involving Indian workers today, Embassy has put in place an emergency helpline number: +965-65505246. "
"All concerned are requested to connect over this helpline for updates. Embassy remains committed to render all possible assistance," it added in the post.
Times Now has accessed details of multiple violations at the building in Kuwait's Al Mangaf. The apartment reportedly housed tenants more than its stipulated capacity.
The workers living in the building lived in very poor conditions. The building exits were reportedly not wide enough for all the workers to rush out when the fire took place, resulting in a large number of casualties.
