Powerlifting world champion succumbs to road accident injury

Delhi: 4 athletes killed in road accident on Panipat highway, two weightlifters injured, say reports

Five Indian powerlifters, including world champion Saksham Yadav, succumbed to his injuries after meeting a auto accident near New Delhi on Sunday morning.

The victims were in a Swift DZire and were driving along the Delhi-Panipat National Highway when the accident occurred at about 4 am in the vicinity of Alipur village, which lies close to the Singhu border that divides Delhi and Haryana.

All the four players died on the spot, the reports said.

While four were killed in the accident, Saksham Yadav, who won a gold medal in 2017 for the country, was seriously injured along with another weightlifter, a police official said. The second survivor was identified as 23-year-old Rohit.

The injured athletes were admitted at a private hospital in Delhi.

Four cops martyred in IED blast
The policemen were from the 3rd Battalion of Indian Reserve Police. "My deepest condolences to their families", she tweeted. Three of the four slain policemen were identified as M Amin of Kupwara, Ghulam Nabi of Sopore and Irshad of Doda.

Police officials suspect that despite the foggy conditions, the driver had been speeding and couldn't notice and avoid the divider.

The police said that the other deceased have been identified as Tikamchand alias Tinka (27), Yogesh (24), Saurabh (18), Harish Roy (20). "He has internal bleeding in the head", said a senior doctor at AIIMS. "We immediately rushed to the spot and found that one Maruti Swift DZire auto bearing number DL 4 CAU 9585 met with an accident near Petrol Pump, while going towards Haryana's Karnal when they were celebrating Rohit's birthday", Gupta told The Indian Express.

The vehicle followed through and then hit an electric pole.

From prima facie, it appeared that the auto was being driven at a very high speed and it being probed whether it was a case of drunken driving as some liquor bottles were found in the vehicle.

Due to severe impact, the car's roof was blown away.
