Guwahati/ 16th April’2018 (Prag News Desk):

In a tragic cause of negligence and heart wrenching incident coming straight from the National capital of India, Delhi’s only Rohingya refugee camp in Kalindi Kunj was gutted after a massive fire broke down in the area.

Around fifty five Rohingya families became homeless yesterday after a massive fire broke in the settlement area of Kalindi Kunj where the Rohingyas were put up as refugees by the Government of India.

The fire broke out in the wee hours of morning, around 3 am with no casualties yet reported.

Mohammad Ashrafullah, a local resident of the area said “The people sleeping inside the tent were quick to spot the fire at its initial stage. If it hadn’t been so, then it would have been difficult for the women and children sleeping inside the tents and it would have turned out a big disaster”.

The colony also had a tiny mosque and a madrasa for the Rohingyas, both of which are now burnt to the ground. Most of the infrastructures made in the colony are entirely of plywood.

Delhi Government is taking immediate action to relocate the fifty five Rohingya families to a different location for their safety.
