About 20 students from a couple of colleges in Tamil Nadu are caught in a forest fire, atop a hill in Theni district. The authorities were alerted by the father of one of the students, who called him to inform him about the incident. Huge forest fires raged even as the students who are said to have gone there for trekking began cooking in the area. Meanwhile, on the plea of TN Chief Minister, Palaniswamy, Union minister Nirmala Seetharam directed Indian Air Force (IAF) authorities to help the students.
