Forty-five persons were charred to death as the private luxury bus they were travelling in burst into flames after its fuel tank caught fire in Mahbubnagar district of Andhra Pradesh.

The incident occurred when the diesel tank of the Hyderabad-bound bus from Bangalore hit against a culvert, engulfing the bus in flames.
