A similar fire incident was witnessed in the same Ganderbal area on 10 May 2024 when a fire outburst ended up damaging a hotel cum restaurant named Biryani Hut as well as two shopping complexes nearby. One of the two shopping complexes was a three-floor shopping complex named Taj Complex, whereas the other one was a commercial building which also housed offices of the State Financial Corporation and Pollution Control Board.
