Four siblings charred to death in Jaipur

Jaipur: Four siblings were charred to death when a fire broke out in their house in Barmer district, police said Thursday.

The incident occurred late last night when the mother of the children had gone out to attend a wedding function and the father was also not present in the house.

"The fire broke out probably due to a lamp and soon engulfed the house. Two brothers Nimba Ram (16), Karna Ram (12) and their sisters Jeti (8) and Chaku (4), sleeping in a room, died due to burn injuries and suffocation," Nagana SHO Mahendra Singh said.
