NEW DELHI: Three men were killed, while another was critically injured after the car they were travelling in rammed a cluster bus late on Tuesday in Dwarka. Police suspect the bus was being driven on the wrong carriageway. The bus driver fled after the accident, but was later arrested.
An initial probe suggests that the cluster bus was taking a turn and entered the carriageway from where the Swift car was coming, leading to a head-on collision. The impact was such that the front portion of the car got completely damaged.
The deceased have been identified as Akhil (35), Pradeep Singh (32) and his brother Kuldeep Singh. The injured man, their friend Sahil, is currently undergoing treatment. The accident took place around 10pm. A call was received at Chhawla police station reporting that a car and bus had collided, resulting in grievous injury to four occupants of the car.
DCP (Dwarka) Santosh Meena said when cops reached the spot, they found that passersby had pulled out the four men from the car and rushed them to Rao Tula Ram Hospital. “The hospital informed us that Akhil had been declared dead. Pradeep was shifted to Safdarjung Hospital, but he died there. Kuldeep was taken to Venkateshwar Hospital, but even he could not be saved. Sahil is still in a critical condition,” he added.
The bus was seized and the absconding driver was identified. Police teams were sent to his residence, but he could not be found there either. “A case has been registered for rash driving and causing death due to negligence,” said an officer.
The families of the deceased were informed about the incident. Police said all four men were friends, but their families were not aware that they had gone out. While Pradeep and Kuldeep owned ration shops near Shyam Vihar, Akhil was into purchasing and retailing cloth and plastic material. He lived with his family in Munirka.
