3 killed in Delhi residential building fire


New Delhi, Nov 2 : Three people were killed and 16 others injured on Wednesday in a blaze that engulfed a residential building here, police said.

“The four-storey building in Shahdara caught fire due to an electric fault as a few battery-rickshaw drivers were charging their vehicles on the ground floor,” a police official told IANS.

“The building housed four families, all relatives, and a tenant family,” he said, adding the identities of the victims were yet to be verified.

The blaze has been put out since.
