Mushtaq Malik, the owner of shops complained about the negligence and reluctance of Fire Brigade in reaching the spot to extinguish the fire.
Immediately after the flames of fire burning the two business edifices appeared, the neighbours came to extinguish it with whatever little amount of water was available at their homes.
"We had called up the fire brigade at least one hour from now, but no body has reached yet" said the wailing Mushtaq while seeing his 'life time' earnings burning to the ashes.
"No one from the administration has come so far after innumerable calls" cried another 'family member' while talking to the Pir Panjal Post.
After the shops were completely burnt the Fire Brigade vehicle reached the spot only to see the angry protesters shouting 'anti administration' slogans.
