Two women patients were killed after being trapped in an ICU of a private hospital where a  fire had broken out on Monday, police said.

The two are identified as Rajbala (32) and Mangla Devi (41).

Acting District Magistrate OP Verma has ordered a magisterial probe into the incident

"The bodies of victims have been sent for postmortem and FIR has been lodged against hospital owner and its management at Baradari police station," Superintendent of Police (City) Rohit Singh Sajwan said.

According to the hospital owner Sharad Agarwal, there were three patients in the ICU and the hospital tried to shift them but because the family members started fighting with the staff, they fled away.

Police said they are probing the matter and that cause of the fire could not be ascertained yet.
