Several people were hospitalised after they complained of suffocation after a massive fire broke out at Hyderabad's Nampally Exhibition Ground on Wednesday evening.
Several stalls were gutted in the fire which spread rapidly through the exhibition venue.
Fire tenders were rushed to the spot to put out the fire even as disaster response force of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation was pressed into service.
The blaze, which apparently started from a stall spread to some other stalls, creating panic among the visitors.
The 45-day All-India industrial exhibition popularly called 'Numaish' started on January 1.
