A distressing incident unfolded in Noida, neighboring Delhi, as a landlord allegedly set fire to a tenant's room, resulting in severe injuries to the tenant's wife and two children. The victims were rushed to Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi for medical treatment.

Authorities reveal conflicting narratives regarding the incident. While the tenant claims that the landlord deliberately ignited the fire, the police assert that the fire originated in the landlord's residence, not due to any intentional act.

Dispute in Gejha village

The incident occurred in Gejha village, Noida, where tensions between the landlord and tenant escalated. Despite the tenant's repeated complaints, alleging police pressure to influence the investigation, law enforcement officials maintain that there is no evidence supporting the tenant's accusations.

Police clarification

The police in-charge at the local station addressed the allegations, stating that the fire erupted in the residence of Med Singh, the landlord, engulfing the rented space occupied by a woman and her two children. However, the tenant's husband alleges that the landlord entered the room with malicious intent, resorting to arson when his advances were rebuffed.

Initial investigations suggest a monetary dispute between the tenant and the landlord. However, upon scrutiny, authorities found discrepancies in the tenant's claims, casting doubt on the veracity of the allegations against the landlord.
