NEW DELHI: In a case of major negligence, two minor cousins died of suffocation after they were locked inside a car accidentally in west Delhi’s Ranhola on Tuesday.

The incident took place after the car owner locked the car without noticing that two kids were inside. Delhi police has filed a case against the car owner.

According to the police, the car owner, Raju, had left the vehicle unlocked when his son, 4, and his nephew, 6, sneaked in to play. Raju, a cab driver by profession, later realised that the car was unlocked. “He came back and without noticing the kids, he remote-locked it with his keys from inside his house.”

Sometime later, the family in their Das Garden locality started searching for the kids and called the police. “It was first suspected they had been kidnapped.

One of the family members spotted one child lying inside the car and raised an alarm. The car was then unlocked and the duo was pulled out. Both were rushed to hospital where they were declared dead on arrival,”  a police official said. “A case of causing death due to negligence was registered and the bodies were sent for post-mortem examination,” a police officer said.

Last year in May, two kids, who got themselves locked inside a car, died of suffocation in Dighal village of Haryana’s Jhajjar. In 2015, two sisters, aged two and four, suffocated to death after they accidentally locked themselves inside a car in Haryana’s Kadarpur village.
