A 42-year-old man was charred to death as he failed to escape his moving SUV when it caught fire in Mahendra Park area in northwest Delhi, police said on Friday.

Ajay Gupta, a resident of Alipur, was on his way to the IGI Airport in his Mahindra XUV 500 on Thursday night when the incident happened, Vijayanta Arya, deputy commissioner of police (northwest), said.
