Indore: A youth has been placed under arrest for allegedly sparking the blaze that snuffed out seven lives and injured nine at a three-storeyed building in Vijay Nagar Police Station limits of Madhya Pradesh's commercial capital.

“Sanjay Dikshit alias Shubham was apprehended during the intervening night in the city's Loha Mandi area. He hails from Jhansi,” SP (Indore Zone-2) Sampat Upadhayay confirmed on Sunday.

Seven persons, including a couple of women, have died of asphyxiation caused by an inferno at a triple-storeyed building in Swarn Bagh Colony within Vijay Nagar Police Station limits of Madhya Pradesh's commercial capital.
