The students of a computer institute in Silchar’s Shyama Prasad Road had a narrow escape when a massive fire engulfed their institute building on Saturday morning.

The fire reportedly broke out due to an electrical short-circuit on the fourth floor of the Basundhara Apartment, where students were busy attending classes.
