How the bravehearted cop saved lives?

The fire was so massive that 14 died in the chaos and around 200 people succeeded saving themselves. As per the reports, constable Sudarshan Shinde was present in the Kamala Mills compound and soon, he informed the police fire station. Sudarshan held the dead bodies over his shoulder out of the fire area and saved many fortunate. As he gets to know about the situation, he informed Worli Police Station.
Sudarshan Shinde said, “It is good to receive a compliment for bravery on the very first eve of the new year but it is sad for us losing 14 people”.Sudarshan Shivaji Shinde was rewarded for his bravery act by Mumbai Police Commissioner.
Are Mumbai pubs and restaurants safe?
After the massive fire accident that happened in Mumbai, the big question arises for the CBI investigation. Mumbai police arrested 2 managers of the 1-Above for their irresponsibility in saving the patrons. Also, they clearly pointed out to the Mojo Bistro’s another restaurant in the same building for the fire attack. Out of the 14 people who died, 11 of them were women, who died due to suffocation and not because of fire blaze.

What is Maharashtra CM’s take on this?
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said five Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (or BMC) officials have been suspended and a case has been registered against the owners of the pub,”1-Above”. He added that officials would also face criminal cases if an inquiry indicted them for being “deliberately negligent”.
Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh states that he felt proud of Mumbai Police and constable Shinde. Mumbai, the city of dreams, known for its glamour is now questioned for the lack of responsibility. Be it waterlogged roads in the rain or the local trains or the Mumbai slum, it gets entangled into one or another. It’s high time the administrative bodies come out of their lethargy and complacency to make the City of Dreams, a better place to live wherein the citizens’ safety remains the topmost priority.
