KANNAUJ: Six people, including two minors, were killed after their car rammed a divider on the busy Lucknow-Agra expressway in Uttar Pradesh's Kannauj district and caught fire, police said today.

The incident happened around midnight when Vinay, a 22- year-old resident of Bihar's Siwan district, was returning to Delhi alongwith his younger brother, Abhay (20), a 30-year- old woman, two children, aged five and six months, and the car's driver, a police official said.

The car collided with the divider near the NCC plot in Talgram, around 152km from Lucknow, and caught fire.

Vinay, who works in Delhi, was found dead outside the car, while the rest of the passengers were charred to death, said Keshav Chandra Goswami, Additional Superintendent of Police.

Vinay's relatives have been informed about the incident from the contact details on his mobile phone, Goswami added.

The identity of the four deceased persons could not be ascertained yet and the bodies have been sent for post-mortem, he added.
