Excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake: Elon Musk
Tesla has been under an increasing amount of pressure due to its failure to produce enough units of the Model 3 to meet demand. A surfeit of automation introduced too quickly in Tesla's Model 3 production line may be partially to blame for delays.

Mohammad Shakir, one of the residents of the camp said that about 230 people from the Rohingya community were staying in the camp. "We are being provided food and clothes by the locals, a lot of help was provided by police".

"A case under appropriate sections has been registered to further investigate the incident".

A forensic team and officials from power distribution company BSES visited the burned camp to ascertain the cause of the fire as media reports claimed that the fire was caused by a short-circuit in the electrical wiring of a makeshift toilet.
