The police said that the two individuals, belonging to Vijaynagar, Ghaziabad died in the accident when they were walking towards the escalator.

"Today in Blue Sapphire Mall, an iron grill fell off the fifth floor due to which two people died. The police team reached the spot and identified the two people belonging to Vijaynagar, Ghaziabad.

The videos of the accident are viral on social media where the bodies of the victims can be seen lying in the pool of blood while some people cautiously attempt to drag them to the safe zones. The duo was rushed to the nearby hospital, but the doctors declared them dead on arrival.

The accident highlights the flouting of safety regulations by the mall and the administration is expected to take action against owners. “Such incidents are becoming more common as mall owners don't pay attention to the safety of people and focus on profit maximization," a witness to the incident said.
