January 23, 1986

At least 34 people were killed when a fire broke out in a luxury hotel in southern New Delhi early this morning, police and doctors said. At least five of the victims died of skull injuries when they jumped from the second and third floors of the Sidharth Inter-Continental Hotel to escape the flames that broke out in the banquet hall on the ground floor, a doctor at a nearby hospital said. The doctor said that at least nine of the dead were foreigners.
