If someone tells me a matter and ask me to keep it confidential from a particular person. If that particular person finds that I know the issue and enquires me very strongly. Should I accept I know or refuse? If I refuse isn’t that be lying or if I accept, I would have broken the trust. What shall I do then?

You must use ambiguity or totally dodge the question.
It’s not permissible to lie nor is it permissible to reveal the secret as it’s an amanah with you.
