New Delhi: A Major fire broke out in a slum cluster at Yamuna Khadar today, following action by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) against an unauthorised nursery in the area.
The DDA Authority said, we are trying to ascertain the cause of fire, it may be a case of sabotage.
A senior police officer said they were informed about the incident at 1.50 pm and the locals were not allowing the fire tenders to enter the area. Some representatives of the Bhartiya Kisan Union were also present at the spot.
On investigation, it was found that the DDA had recently sent a notice to the residents running nurseries in the area to vacate the place since it was unauthorised.
“Since then, the residents had been sitting in protest against the move. Today, when the DDA team finally arrived, locals tried to stop them”. Police have registered a case in the matter.
