 November 30, 2017: A bus ferrying around 55 people, including 27 women and children, caught fire in south Delhi’s Prahladpur. Police informed that no casualties were reported. 

After the incident, passengers informed to the police that they were on their way to attend a marriage in Surajkund from Jaitpur. They had hired the bus from a private operator. At 1.30 a.m. the bus was crossing Prahladpur when the driver noticed flames emanating from the engine.
The driver got scared and jumped from the moving bus, which collided with a road divider. All passengers were promptly rescued by PCR personnel patrolling the area.
The rescuers tried to control the fire by emptying nearly two dozen bottles containing 20 litres of drinking water each. But the smoke had begun to spread rapidly.
“All the passengers had been rescued before someone even made a PCR call or the arrival of the firefighters. We don’t know the cause of the fire and will register a formal case before probing it,” said the DCP.
On the driver, who was accused by the rescuers of deserting the victims, was not found at the spot when the people searched for him, the DCP said. “We have his details and will question him soon,” said the officer.
