Blaze razes Rohingya camp

A Rohingya camp in South East Delhi's Kalindi Kunj area was razed to the ground after a massive fire broke out early on Sunday. Biswal also said that they have also registered a case under relevant section under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against people at Jaitpur police station, and are trying to examine the cause of the fire.

Meanwhile, the families have been moved to temporary camp.

"We were told to vacate our houses by the police patrolling team, and within seconds of leaving the house the only shelter on our head was engulfed in the flames", said Mohammad Atif, a resident at the camp.

"It will be very hard for these people now as all they had, has been gutted in the fire", she added. "They were unable to pull the load of the amount of electricity they were consuming and hence one of these snapped", said a police officer. It added that the fire began at the back of the camp where the toilets are located. A forensic team of the Delhi police and officials of a power discom visited the spot to ascertain the cause of fire.

Residents of the camp said that the blaze appeared to have spread from the extreme right corner of the camp.

The fire broke out around 3.30 am and spread to the entire camp within 15 minutes. "Everything that I had collected in the last four years has been reduced to ashes", said Khurshid Alam, another resident.

The NGOs and local residents helped the Rohingya refugees by providing clothes, foods and other needed items. We could could barely get enough time to get ut belongings. "We immediately rushed to the site with food and clothes", said a student of Jamia Millia Islamia.
