Two People Killed When Passenger Bus Ignites on Gurugram-Jaipur Highway

A moving sleeper bus caught fire on the Delhi-Gurugram Expressway on Wednesday night, resulting in the death of two and injuring over a dozen, said police.

Video footage from the scene showed the bus engulfed in flames, with plumes of smoke rising into the night sky. The cause of the fire was not known immediately.

The incident took place around 8:30 pm near the Jharsa flyover on the main carriageway from Delhi to Jaipur, said Fire Department Deputy Director Gulshan Kalra.

“Three fire engines were rushed to the spot after we received information that a sleeper bus with registration number AR 01 K 7707 had caught fire on the carriageway,” the officer told news agency PTI.

Gurugram’s Civil Hospital’s Dr Manav confirmed seven injured are undergoing treatment at the facility.

“All injured have suffered 30 to 50 per cent burns but are stable,” he said.
