Seven, including two children, die in car fire after collision with truck in Rajasthan

In a tragic incident on Sunday, seven people, including two children, were burnt alive after their car caught fire following a collision with a truck on the Churu-Salasar state highway in Rajasthan’s Churu district. The family was returning from Salasar Balaji temple when the accident occurred.

According to SHO Subhash Bikaraniya, the police received information about the accident and immediately called the fire brigade to the scene. Despite their efforts, all seven passengers in the car succumbed to their injuries.

The victims were identified as residents of Meerut city in Uttar Pradesh, including Neelam Goyal, Ashutosh Goyal, Manju Bindal, Hardik Bindal, Swati Bindal, Diksha, and a four-year-old child. The car had a gas kit, and the truck was carrying cotton at the time of the collision.

During the recovery process, investigators found a half-burnt mobile phone among the wreckage. By extracting the SIM card and placing it in another phone, they were able to contact a woman who confirmed she had spoken to her mother who was traveling back from Salasar Balaji temple. This breakthrough assisted the police in identifying the deceased individuals.

The authorities are continuing their investigation into the cause of the accident, and our thoughts are with the family and loved ones of the victims during this difficult time.
