Nine cattle also died in the incident, a source said, adding that the rain caused damage to 21 houses in Malegaon, Satana, Sinnar, Niphad and Nashik tehsils.

The district administration will provide financial assistance to the kin of the deceased, an official at the collector's office said. Earlier on Sunday night, four people were killed when lightning struck them in two separate incidents in the district, police said..
