Mother-son killed as cow shed catches fire in Uttar Pradesh village

A 56-year-old woman and her 35-year-old son died while trying to save their cattle after the thatched sheds where they were kept, caught fire.

The incident took place in Bhusi Amva village on Thursday when Kaushalya Devi lit the household garbage for smoke to get rid of mosquitoes.

However, the smolders soon turned into huge flames and engulfed the huts where the cattle were kept. In a panic, Devi and her son Ram Ashish rushed to the burning sheds to free their cattle.

The dead bodies have been sent for autopsy. Meanwhile, tehsildar Vivekananda has confirmed that he has placed the case before higher authorities for financial help. The ex-gratia amount is likely to be announced soon.
