Meanwhile, the fire incident has revealed that the fire No Objection Certificate (NOC) had expired besides several shortcomings regarding the fire safety.  Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra said police have registered a case of culpable homicide against four doctors-cum-owners of the hospital and arrested its manager, a day after the devastating blaze.
