I was told that tangent is a line which is in contact with the circle in only one point. But when the point is in interioir to the line toouches only one point. Isn't this a tangent to the circle?

A tangent just touch ther line at one point only no matter how musch you extend it in both the directions.
If the point is in interior of circle then you cant draw any tangent to the circle because when extend it it will intersect it at two points.
Hope this clarifies your doubt
