CHANDI­GARH:WHEN Arsh Bha­tia left his house on Satur­day for a party with his friends, he would have never thought that his fate had some­thing else in store for him. The 20-year-old BCom stu­dent suc­cumbed to his in­juries af­ter strug­gling for life for two days.

Arsh had re­cently taken ad­mis­sion to DAV Col­lege in Sec­tor 10.

The car he was trav­el­ling in went out of con­trol on the Sec­tor 9-17 di­vid­ing road, hit the di­vider and hur­tled through the air up to a height of 12 feet be­fore land­ing on the car of Haryana’s IAS of­fi­cer Keshni Anand Arora.

De­scrib­ing Arsh as a jovial per­son, his friends said the en­tire group was on their way to at­tend an af­ter­noon party by some friends when the ac­ci­dent took place.

In tears, his friends sit­ting out­side his house in Sec­tor 20 said Arsh was sit­ting on the front seat of the car when the ac­ci­dent took place.

“It was the first day of the new ses­sion at DAV Col­lege. Ide­ally, Arsh would have en­tered the col­lege with fresh hopes. But he lost the bat­tle for life at the PGI a few min­utes be­fore his first class started,” a cousin of Arsh said.

“With a dream to go to the US and help his fa­ther in busi­ness, he al­ways wanted to study com­merce,” said Sparsh, his cousin. Rel­a­tives and friends con­tin­ued to visit Arsh’s res­i­dence to ex­press their con­do­lences.

The po­lice said Arsh’s fa­ther Ash­wini Bha­tia was expected to reach In­dia from the US on Wed­nes­day morn­ing and the cre­ma­tion would take place only af­ter that. The body was handed over to the fam­ily af­ter a post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion.
