New Delhi, March 10: A 70-year-old man died after a fire broke out in East Delhi’s Trilokpuri area in the early hours of Friday, an official said.

The deceased was identified as Niroti Lal, a resident of Trilokpuri

According to police, the patrolling staff noticed a fire at around 2 a.m. near block-15 in Trilokpuri.

“The staff made a police control room call and local police immediately reached the spot. Fire tenders also arrived at the spot and extinguished the fire. The charred body of a male was found inside the jhuggi (shanty),” said a senior police official.

Niroti’s wife lives with his son in law Jaipal Singh and three children. Jaipal Singh accompanied the body in an ambulance to the LBS hospital.
