To this, the Delhi Government stated that this couldn't be said as of now. Why don't you take proper steps for their maintenance.

Besides paintball, the warehouse includes trampolines and bouncy houses. The gym specializes in parkour, which is a sport that requires athletes to navigate obstacle courses. No further information was immediately available. Another parent said his two children suffered minor scrapes. "I had my own children there tonight".

After the incident children were seen huddled in groups - some with their parents and guardians - outside the center, as emergency service vehicles lined the area. My heart aches for the families who call Vault PK home.
