Six pups were charred to death and two cows, a calf and a buffalo sustained burns in a cattle shed fire last night at Ruherianwali village on the Abohar-Fazilka road.
Sahi Ram told the police that when he came to know about the fire, he tried to move the cattle out, but four head of cattle sustained injuries and six pups were burnt alive.
The police said Sahi Ram’s statement had been recorded and investigations were on.
In another incident at Sadulshehar, Ward no.11 residents prevented a tragedy when they noticed an electronic wall clock burning in the lobby of a house and informed the fire brigade. Davinder Bajaj, the house owner, was not at home at the time of the incident. Fire station staff immediately intervened and doused the fire, which reportedly broke out due to a short circuit.
