Three girls die of asphyxiation in ‘locked’ car

Three girls, aged around six years, reportedly died of asphyxiation after they got stuck in a car at Remalle village of Bapulapadu mandal in Krishna district on Thursday.

The deceased have been identified as Suhana Begum (5), Sheik Afsana (6), and Yasmin (6).

The three were the daughters of employees of Mohan Spintex India Ltd spinning mill in Remalle village and were residing in the quarters provided by the company. The children, while playing, got into a car parked on the company premises and closed the doors unaware of the automatic locking system.

Parents who found the children missing began a search only to find them lying unconscious in the car. It was unclear whether the car doors were locked unknowingly by the children or due to automatic door locking system.
