Legal Question in Personal Injury in India

I am raising this query for my friend. Unfortunately, some days back his shop's roof fell down. There were some people sleeping on road who got injured and a 5 year old child died too. Now my friend is being tortured from those homeless people and police to pay for their loss.

Firstly, if someone would have been sleeping in the shop, then it makes sense to take it as owner"s responsibility. How are they responsible for people sleeping on road?.

Secondly, it is choice of those people to sleep on road which is actually a government property. How can they harass shop owner for their loss?

Kindly suggest and guide.
