A massive fire broke out in a cracker market at the Dusshera Grounds in Faridabad Tuesday evening. Several persons were injured but no casualties reported yet. The incident triggered protests in the area. Initial estimates suggest the fire caused a loss of over over Rs. 3 Cr. The Dusshera ground located in the New Industrial Township (NIT) area is usually used to set up stalls for selling crackers in the run-up to Diwali. The administration gives licences to interested people who set up cracker stalls. Till Tuesday evening, nearly 200 stalls had come up.
