A fire that broke out in Central market, Lajpat Nagar was successfully controlled by the fire department around 1.45 AM today.

A thick smog rose up from Vishal Rajasthan Emporium’s first and second floors, as the NewsGram team reached the area.

According to the authorities present at the site, the fire was accidental and caused by a short circuit somewhere on the top floor. Most bystanders felt that the short circuit was caused by the ongoing rain, which has been insistent for the past few days.

According to the Lajpat Nagar police station, visible flames were reported from the area at 11.47 PM. The fire was subdued within an hour.

Sparks also caused a minor fire to break out in front of KFC, which was also doused by the firemen.

No body was reported injured in both the incidents.

New York, October 15, 2017 : A woman of Indian-descent was left to die in a car by the driver who left her behind after the vehicle caught fire in New York, according to media reports.

Firefighters found the charred body of 25-year-old Harleen Grewal early Friday morning, the New York Daily News reported.

The driver of the car, Saeed Ahmad, 23, whom the daily described as “heartless”, flagged down a taxi near the scene of the incident to go to a hospital.

WABC TV broadcast a chilling video showing Ahmad stopping the taxi saying, “Can I get a ride?” while the vehicle was in flames.

The police caught him at the hospital, where he was being treated for burns to his arms and legs, and charged him with homicide and several other offences relating to the incident.

His driving licence had been suspended prior to the accident making it illegal for him to drive.

Police sources told the New York Daily News that Ahmad had a few drinks before the crash but a blood test showed he was not legally drunk.

He was seen weaving in and out of traffic before his 2007 Infiniti G35 car hit the road divider and caught fire, according to witnesses.

Ahmad told the police that he was dating Grewal, the daughter of Punjabi immigrants.

Ahmad’s brother, Waheed, claimed that he had tried to rescue Grewal. (IANS)
