Mangaluru, Mar 06, 2019: The house of a poor Dalit family located near the crematorium at Chembugudde near Thokkottu was gutted in a fire on March 6, Wednesday morning.
The occupants of the house Mohini and Ankitha were away when the fire broke out. Locals tried to put out the fire.
The house owner Shobha had passed away few years ago and since then her two unmarried daughters are residing here. The two who have been living under abject poverty conditions are now at a loss after losing their shelter in the fire.
