Unveiling Accountability: Rajkot’s Legal Battle Amidst the Tragic Rajkot Gaming Zone Fire Incident

The recent fire outbreak that occurred at the game zone in Rajkot, Gujarat has turned into a legal tussle as a court summons the Special Investigation Team (SIT) responsible for investigating the fire. The petition has also called for criminal charges to be brought against the IPS and IAS officers, among others, who were suspended following the tragedy that led to the loss of 27 lives.

The court, acting on a ‘criminal inquiry plea’, has asked the SIT to submit a report by June 20, regarding the progress of the investigation made into the charges against the IPS and IAS officers transferred from the district, and other suspended officials. Through the petitioner Vinesh Chhaya, the lawyer Rajesh Jalu insists that the case is rather imperative and that the grounds for suspension are enough to lead to FIRs against the officials.

The plea provides the Indian Penal Code sections such as culpable homicide not amounting to murder and causing hurt by negligent acts to show how serious the matter is. It focuses on the deaths of 27 people and injuries that occurred because the accused officials are said to have been negligent in the performance of their duties.

Furthermore, the petition provides information on the illicit activities of the TRP game zone that seemingly had been operating without the needed permits or authorization for many years. This revelation raises systemic issues that may have played a role in the tragedy.

The on-site visit of the Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel only serves to aggravate the situation and thereby demands immediate action against the responsible individuals.
