Police said that the incident took place at about 3.30pm when a man, two women and a minor were travelling in the car, a Renault Triber (CNG), to reach Jhajjar from Gurugram.

Police said that the man slowed down the car soon after smoke started billowing from the engine. He somehow managed to bring the vehicle to a halt on the side of the road and all of them got out. Soon the car was completely engulfed in flames, they added.

Investigators said that the incident caused a traffic snarl on the Delhi-Jaipur carriageway of the expressway for almost 15 minutes. The firefighters reached the spot and doused the flame, but the car was completely gutted, they added.

Inspector Haresh Kumar, station house officer of the Sector-17/18 police station, said that the charred car was immediately removed from the spot. “No one has arrived to submit any complaint yet. It is also unclear that how the fire was sparked,” he said.
