At least 19 people, mostly students, were killed after a massive fire broke out at a coaching centre in Gujarat's Surat last afternoon.

Videos posted by witnesses on social media showed several students jumping out of windows on the top floor of the four-storey building to escape the blaze.

The cause of the fire is not yet clear, but officials said the blaze spread through packed classrooms because of the material used in the roof.

At least 20 others sustained serious injuries and are being treated in hospital in Gujarat. Most of the students are said to be between the ages of 14 and 17.
