At least 43 people were killed and 16 injured on Sunday in a fire that broke out in a market building in central India's capital New Delhi, according to a new police report.

The previous balance pointed to 34 dead.

Medical officer at a state hospital Kishore Singh said the victims were taken to the hospital by rescue workers.

The cause of the fire, which started around 5:30 am (0:30 am in Lisbon) is being investigated.

Fire Chief Atul Garg said the fire was extinguished in an operation that mobilized 25 vehicles.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi described the fire as "extremely horrible".

"My thoughts are with those who have lost their loved ones. I wish the wounded a speedy recovery," said the ruler in a post on the social network Twitter.

Fires are common in India, where building laws and safety standards are often disregarded by builders and residents.

In 1997, a movie fire in New Delhi killed 59 people. In February this year, 17 people were killed by a fire in a six-story hotel, also in the Indian capital, which began in an unauthorized kitchen on the top floor of the building.
