4 powerlifting players killed in road accident in India

In a tragic incident, four national-level powerlifting players from Delhi lost their lives after the vehicle they were riding hit a road divider and crashed into a pole near the Sindhu Border on Delhi-Panipat Highway today morning.

Yadav had won a gold medal for the country in Moscow in 2017.

The force of the impact was so high that the vehicle rolled over several times and its roof got completely blown off, before the auto hit the pole, police said.

Four players died while Yadav and another weightlifter were seriously injured. Due to severe impact, the car's roof was blown away.

"All the deceased and injured are from Haryana and stayed in different places in (north) Delhi's Timarpur area".

Police officials suspect over-speeding to be the reason behind the accident.

The cops rushed to the spot and found that one Maruti Swift met with an accident near a petrol pump while going towards Haryana's Karnal when they were celebrating Rohit's birthday.

Preliminary police inquiry had revealed that the mishap happened around 4 am when the driver of the auto in which the six men were travelling lost control over the speeding vehicle and crashed into a divider near a petrol pump.

The two injured players were taken to Narela's Satyawadi Raja Harishchadra Hospital from where they were referred to Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh. Some liquor bottles were found in the vehicle. "A case has been registered at the Alipur police station", Gupta said, adding that the family members were informed and the bodies have been sent for post-mortem.

The players who died in the accident have been identified as Harish, Tinku and Suraj, while the fourth person's identity is not known yet, said reports.
