"On early Tuesday morning at around 5:30 am, we received a PCR call from a passerby who reported a car fire near Delhi Police society in sector pi-II of Greater Noida. We immediately informed the fire station and fire tenders along with police team were rushed to the spot. After the fire was doused, a completely burnt body of a man was found on the driving seat of the car," said Nishank Sharma, Circle Officer-1, Greater Noida. The officer further said that the man was identified based on vehicle's registration number.
"Based on car's registration number, we traced the victim who was identified as Pawan Dhiman, a native of Una district in Himachal Pradesh and lived with his family in Cassia Estate society in sector Eta-1 of Greater Noida. He worked with Bridge Global solutions private limited and was on his way to home after completing his night shift when the incident took place. We have informed the family and the body has been sent for the post mortem. Further investigations into the case are underway" added Sharma.

Eyewitnesses said that the victim tried several times to eject himself from the car but failed. Some people even rushed for help but as fire turned massive, they failed to escape him.
