Three Delhi Police personnel on Saturday saved the lives of two children who were stuck inside a crèche that caught fire. The incident left the creche owner injured.
The incident took place at 12.45 PM when the two children, identified as Anmol and Munesh, aged between 6 and 7 years, and crèche owner Sapna Seth were present in it. As the blaze spread, Seth jumped off the second floor in an attempt to save herself, leaving the children behind.
Head Constable Rituraj and Constable Jogendra and Jitendra, who were patrolling in the area, rushed to the site on getting the news of the fire. Jitender walked up to the second floor of a neighbouring house, broke open the window with his hands to enter the house and saved the children, said a police official.
“Jitendra received some injuries in his hands due to broken glass pieces but the children are safe,” said a police officer.
The policemen then found that the fire was coming out of a cylinder. In order to avert a cylinder blast, the policemen took out the cylinder and doused it.
