Mumbai: A car allegedly caught fire at Deonar Road in Mumbai on Friday, said news agency ANI.

Last month, a moving car caught fire at Eastern Express Highway between Mulund and Vikhroli in Mumbai. The driver of the car escaped unhurt.

On Saturday, a 35-year-old woman, along with her two daughters, was charred to death in East Delhi’s Akshardham flyover, after the vehicle they were travelling in caught fire due to compressed natural gas (CNG) leak as revealed by the initial probe.

According to a report, the man driving the car managed to get out of the vehicle with one of his daughters. However, the woman and two daughters, seated on the passenger seat, couldn’t save themselves and were burnt to death.

In a similar incident last year, a moving car had caught fire near Chakala (JB Nagar) Metro station in Andheri-east, Mumbai. No casualties were reported in the incident. The driver, however, suffered minor injuries.
