Several case property vehicles stashed outside bus stand police chowki caught fire on Monday. This is the second such incident, which took place at the same chowki in the last two months. It took a couple of hours for the firefighters to douse the flames.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) said the Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police was holding a probe in the matter.

Bus stand chowki is located inside Shaheed Madan Lal Dhingra Inter State Bus terminus.
