In a shocking incident, NCP leader Sanjay Shinde was burnt alive in his own car after it caught fire due to a short circuit on Tuesday. Reportedly, the leader was travelling on the Mumbai-Agra Highway while the car caught fire near the Pimpalgaon Baswant toll plaza after a small snag.
It was learnt that a highly flammable hand sanitiser kept in the car caught the spark and in no time the fire raged burning everyone in the car. Locals who tried to rescue the leader stated that their efforts to save the passengers in car as the central locking mechanism of the vehicle was activated, leaving the doors jammed.
The fire brigade managed to douse the flames and it was only later that the deceased was identified as NCP leader Sanjay Shinde. The NCP leader who is a renowned grape exporter in the Nashik district is reportedly travelling to buy pesticides for his vineyard.
