Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - - Metro - Htre­porters@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Four men were killed on the streets of Delhi in two sep­a­rate ac­ci­dents in­volv­ing mo­tor­cy­cles in the last 24 hours, po­lice said on Thurs­day.

Po­lice said that a speed­ing truck had been iden­ti­fied as the cause for one of the mishaps.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, one of the ac­ci­dents took place around 2.20am on Thurs­day. Two peo­ple, iden­ti­fied as Mo­hit Ya­dav (an engi­neer­ing stu­dent) and Jatin Pawar (a busi­ness­man), who were on a two-wheeler were hit by an al­legedly speed­ing truck in outer Delhi’s Sa­maipur Badli.

The ac­ci­dent was wit­nessed by Anil, a pri­vate driver em­ployed by Delhi Po­lice.

“The truck sud­denly swerved while try­ing to over­take the twowheeler from the left and hit the ve­hi­cle,” said Anil in his state­ment to the po­lice..

Anil, mean­while, chased the truck for one kilo­me­tre and nabbed the driver. The two in­jured men were taken to a hos­pi­tal by PCR staff, but they could not be saved.

Ear­lier, two men were killed and an­other was crit­i­cally in­jured af­ter their mo­tor­cy­cle was in­volved in a hit-and-run in­ci­dent on the Pun­jabi Bagh Fly­over in west Delhi on Wed­nes­day morn­ing. The men were res­i­dents of Shakur Basti.
