3142 -Photographer, daughter die after his e-scooter explodes in Tamil Nadu; pic surfaces
A 49-year-old photographer and his 13-year-old daughter died allegedly after their new e-scooter exploded while it was being charged at their home in Tamil Nadu's Vellore. "The socket seems to be an old one and has less voltage capacity to charge an e-bike. They might have died due to suffocation," police said. The duo reportedly locked themselves inside a washroom.

"We're aware of the incident...and are investigating to understand the root cause," Ola said. It further said Ola is in touch with the customer who's "absolutely safe".
