A 45-year-old Assistant Commissioner of the Income Tax Department was among the 17 people who lost their lives in the fire in a hotel here.

Suresh Kumar, a resident of Panchkula in Haryana, died after he jumped off from the window of his fourth floor room at the Arpit Palace Hotel in central Delhi's Karol Bagh early on Tuesday morning.

Eyewitnesses said that Kumar fell headlong and badly injured his skull.

He was immediately taken to hospital, where he was declared brought dead by the doctors.

It took 25 fire tenders more than three hours to douse the early morning fire at Arpit Palace Hotel on Tuesday.
