Mumbai, Oct 14 (PTI) A 55-year-old man was charred to

death after his car, which contained a bottle of inflammable

hand sanitiser, caught fire in Nashik district of Maharashtra,

a police official said on Wednesday.

The victim, Sanjay Shinde, was a taluka unit vice

president of NCP, police said.

"The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon, when

Shinde, a resident of Sakore village was on his way to

Pimpalgaon on Mumbai-Agra road, to purchase pesticides," the

official said.

"The car caught fire near the Pimpalgaon Baswant toll

plaza possibly due to short-circuit in the wiring ," he said.

"After noticing the flames, Shinde tried to stop his

car, but he could not get out as its doors got locked. He

tried to break open the window, but was unable to do so. The

fire soon spread and he was charred to death inside," the

official said.

"We found a bottle of hand sanitiser inside the car,

and we suspect that the blaze might have spread quickly due to

it as it is an inflammable substance," he said.

Shinde, who was a well-known grape exporter in the

Nashik district, he said.

After being alerted, the fire brigade personnel rushed

the spot and doused the fire, but Shinde was already dead, the

official said.

A case of accidental death was registered at

Pimpalgaon Baswant police station, he said. PTI DC i
