Panchkula, November 7

A man, who was charred to death in a moving car near Rihod village on the Panchkula-Yamunanagar highway on Thursday night, has been identified as Labh Singh of Rampur Seuri.

The 50-year-old, who worked as a peon in the Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHBVN) office in Sector 6, was on his way back from Yamunanagar when the car he had borrowed from his friend Vijay caught fire while in motion, leaving no chance for him to get out of it.

However, the registered owner of the car is Vijay's friend Ketan Rana of Chandigarh.

The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained. Fire engines were called to the spot to douse the flames. It took firefighters 30 minutes to put out the blaze.

According to a police official, the flames erupted suddenly while the Maruti Swift DZire was in motion, apparently disabling the central locking system of the car, trapping the victim inside.
