Cricket victory celebrations proves costly for family

93 Days ago

Ghaziabad, March 28 (IANS) The celebrations that followed India's victory over Australia in the World Twenty20 cricket tournament proved costly for a Ghaziabad family which lost all its household goods packed in a truck after it caught fire.

Sunil Kumar's family shifted on Sunday night to a newly bought flat in Raj Nagar Extension here.

When their truck reached the colony with their household goods around 10 p.m., the residents were celebrating India's six-wicket win by exploding firecrackers.

The truck was parked in a passage near the lift so that the goods could be carried easily.

A firecracker landed on the truck, setting fire to a mattress. In no time, the truck was ablaze. Before the fire tenders could reach the spot, all the household items were burnt. (IANS)
