However, speaking about the incident, a school education department official said that as the fire broke out, all 380 students of the facility, were safely evacuated by porta cabin staffers and local villagers.

"All 380 students of the facility were safely evacuated by porta cabin staffers and local villagers. However, later it was found that the younger sister of a student was missing. She died of burn injuries," the official said.

The victim was not a student of the school. She was staying with her elder sister for the last few days, the official added.
