- AGE COR­RE­SPON­DENT

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.
