Gaurab Debnath, who resides near the towers said, "I have booked a hotel for the safety and comfort of my family. I needed a hotel that was pet-friendly. Like us, many families have shifted to hotels because of the demolition."

Ravi Kapoor, who lives in a building right next to the towers, said, "The administration has made arrangements in community halls but we shifted to a hotel on Saturday itself due to the risks involved. I have my parents with me. We plan to go home tomorrow, or once the dust settles.

However, we have taken a regular overnight booking," Kapoor added.
