Two boys suffered burn injuries while playing with a matchstick in RK Puram, south Delhi on Tuesday. The boys dropped a lit matchstick in an open drain, leading to a minor fire. Fire erupted from the drain as soon as the matchstick came in contact with the inflammable methane gas that had accumulated in the drain, police said.

The duo — aged 10 and 12 — suffered burn injuries on their faces and other parts of the body. They were rushed to the Safdarjung Hospital.
