Fire at Singhu border amid farmers protest: Two tents and a car were allegedly set on fire by some miscreants at the Singhu border on Thursday where farmers have been protesting against the farm laws for over the last few months.
Meanwhile, the furniture and luggage inside the tents were gutted into the fire at the Singhu border. According to the information, no casualties were reported as the protesters doused the fire in time.
A member of Samyukta Kisan Morcha said that the incident took place at around 12 noon. The alleged accused was seen near a tent, he said.
Adding, he said that the accused was trying to set the tent on fire. As soon as the farmers saw the fire, they rushed with water to douse the fire. Then, the man set another tent to fire and left while a group of farmers tried to chase him but he escaped.
Likewise, the farmers lodged a complaint at the Kundli police station. The tents were built by farmers for the summers where they had kept their luggage and even installed air coolers besides some furniture inside these tents.
The police said that nobody was injured in the incident as the fire was doused within an hour.
Thousands of farmers have been protesting at three border points of Delhi — Singhu, Tikri (along with Haryana), and Ghazipur — demanding a repeal of farm laws.
