Three bikers killed in two mishaps
Accused drivers escape from spot, cops probing case
Three people died in two separate accidents in trans-Yamuna localities on Sunday night.
In the first incident, two friends, identified as Mohammed Waseem and Mohammed Shariq, died after the motorcycle they were riding was hit by a truck in northeast Delhi’s Yamuna Vihar area. The two were rushed to Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital but both were declared brought dead by the doctors.
The police said that while Waseem, a resident of Mustafabad, worked as an auto mechanic in Welcome, Shariq, Waseem’s neigh- bour, was an electrician. “Waseem lived with his parents, Ali Mohammed and Bilkis and two brothers whereas Shariq stayed with his parents and eight siblings, five brothers and three sisters,” said the police, adding that “both had gone out to enjoy the weather when the incident took place.”
The truck driver, on the other hand, escaped from the spot after the incident. A case was registered at the New Usmanpur police station and further investigation is on.
In the second incident, a 39- year- old man died while a youth suffered serious injuries after the scooty they were traveling on was rammed by a speeding car in Shakarpur area of east Delhi.
The deceased has been identified as Manjeet who lived with his wife Sukhwinder Kaur, a son and a daughter in Gandhi Nagar area.
“Manjeet was going to Bangla Sahib Gurdwara with Ishpreet, a neighbour, when the incident took place,” said the police, adding that, “Ishpreet was driving the scooty and they were at Geeta Colony flyover when the car hit their two- wheeler.”
Both were rushed to the hospital where Manjeet was declared brought dead and Ishpreet is undergoing treatment. The car driver, who escaped from the spot, is believed to have run over Manjeet even as he lay on the road. The cops are investigating the matter and a case was registered at the Shakarpur police station.
In both cases, the bodies were handed over to the family members after the autopsy. Investigating officials are looking for CCTV footage near the spots to identify the two vehicles who made the hit.
