Car crash victim Arsh Bhatia dies
Car went out of control on the Sector 9-17 dividing road, hit the divider and hurtled through the air
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.
