A fatal blaze in one production facility at the Serum Institute of India (SII) SEZ plant in Manjri on 21st January, in Pune shocked everyone. Fire sparks generated during the construction work combined with inflammable materials such as PVC, plastic, acrylic and plywood present there trapped and asphyxiated the workers killing 5 of them.
