Five Charred To Death After Auto Catches Fire In Andhra Pradesh


Andhra Pradesh: As many as five people were charred to death after an auto-rickshaw which they were travelling in caught fire in Andhra Pradesh’s Satya Sai district on Thursday morning.

According to reports, the incident occurred when an auto-rickshaw carrying an unknown number of agriculture labourers rammed into an electric pole, as a result of which high-tension wires fell on the vehicle.

However, some of the passengers, including the driver, jumped out of the vehicle, and others were caught and were charred to death.

On being alerted, electricity department staff switched off the power supply to avoid further casualties. The police rushed to the spot and took up the rescue operations along with the locals and revenue staff.
