Two other players including a world champion who bagged the title for India in Moscow a year ago, were injured in the accident.
The six athletes were going from Delhi to Panipat in a Swift Dezire compact sedan, carrying their powerlifting kits, when they met with the accident at 4 am near Alipur village, close to the Singhu border between Delhi and Haryana. Saksham was travelling with four other powerlifters who died on spot.
Yadav had recently won a gold medal in the 2017 powerlifting championship for the country in Moscow. The victims were on the Delhi-Panipat highway in a Swift Dzire vehicle which police believe was being driven at high speed in a drastically reduced visibility due to fog.
Reports said there was dense fog during the time of accident.
