In the month of November, 18 vehicles, including 16 four-wheelers and 02 two-wheelers, were burnt to ashes after a fire broke out in a Kohinoor Parking, which is a BMC-run parking facility at Dadar West. BJP MLC Prasad Lad had also raised the issue in the state legislative council and sought a report from the state government about BMC-run public parking's security.
