New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday appealed people to maintain calm and allow the firefighters to douse blaze that broke out at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

"The fire in AIIMS building will be brought under control at the earliest. Fire Service trying it's best to extinguish the fire. I appeal to everyone to maintain calm and allow the Fire Services personnel to do their work," he tweeted.
