Agartala, March 18: A devastating fire engulfed ten shops and burnt to ashes at Rajarbagh area in Udaipur on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday.
The mysterious arson has incurred huge loss to the owners of 10 shops. As people of Udaipur fell asleep, there is no one to douse the fire. However, smelling smoke, people rushed to the spot and informed Fire Brigade. Before arrival of the fire service personnel, all the shops were turned into ashes.
The 31-RK Pur mandal President Prabir Das visited the site on Saturday morning after receiving information about the fire incident. From that place, he spoke to Udaipur SDM and Tehsil’s office for financial help through proper investigation of these shop owners.
Meanwhile, the president of RK Pur Mandal said that they will be helped on a party basis. Speaking to media personnel, Das said that many shops were completely destroyed by fire because initially he said that since there is a hotel here, the fire may have started from that hotel but it is just an assumption; the real reason is still unknown.
It is supposed that the loss is very high and the shop owners are totally in great despair.
