The deceased have been identified as Pankaj (19) and Sumit (16), residents of Gurgaon. Their uncle Yashveer, who is a driver in the Security Wing of the Delhi Police, has been admitted to Safdarjung Hospital with 20 per cent burns.
According to the police, the incident took place at around 6:30 pm when the trio were on their way to see a relative in the car bearing a Haryana registration number.
Yashveer was driving while the two boys were sitting at the back.
"The car caught fire which spread so fast that the two brothers, who were mentally challenged, could not come out of it. Yashveer managed to escape before the car turned into a ball of fire," said a police official.
"We got a call about the incident at about 6:30 pm, after which two fire tenders were rushed to the spot. Bodies of the two youth were recovered from the car after the blaze was extinguished," said a Fire Department official.
Police said the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.
