A devastating fire tore through the Kashmiri Gate Metro Police Station in Delhi, obliterating case files, records, and crucial documents. According to officials, the inferno engulfed 15 rooms of the police station and spread to 18 rooms of the metro deputy commissioner's office on the same premises.

The blaze erupted around 12:45 am, with the Delhi Fire Services receiving an emergency call. Despite the intense flames, there were no reported casualties, thanks to the swift evacuation of 15 police personnel present at the time.

Twelve fire tenders battled the blaze for over an hour and a half, successfully preventing the spread to the malkhaana, which stored arms and ammunition. Initial investigations suggest a short circuit in the station's ladies room may have sparked the fire, with a forensic team now probing the incident.
