During enquiry, police learnt that the boy used to work as a salesman with the shop and after working late he slept inside the shop. The fire broke out in the shop and he could not come out, the officer said.
A senior officer from the Delhi Fire Service, however, said they did not receive any call regarding the incident.
The body has been sent for post-mortem and a case has been registered, they said.
The exact cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained, police said, adding that further investigation is underway.
