    There were no reports of any injuries.

    The police have, however, detained some people who locals alleged were involved in setting the slum on fire.

    Seven fire tenders were rushed to the spot.

    Leader of the opposition and Communist Party of India – Marxist politburo member Surjyo Kanta Mishra went to the spot and spoke to the affected people, who alleged that it was a case of arson in which “some Trinamool Congress men” were involved.

    However, the Trinamool denied the allegations.

    Mishra demanded rehabilitation of the affected people.
