Four power-lifters killed in road accident near Delhi-Haryana border

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.

The injured were admitted to the Max hospital in Shalimar Bagh in New Delhi.

"Saksham's condition is extremely critical as he has severe head injuries. He has internal bleeding in the head", said a senior doctor at AIIMS.

DCP (Rohini) Rajneesh Gupta said the deceased have been identified as Tikamchand alias Tinka (27), Saurabh (18), Yogesh (24) and Harish Roy (20). "They were celebrating Rohit's birthday on Saturday and had gone to Karnal (in Haryana)", the officer said. The impact of the contact was severe enough to wrench the roof of the auto entirely off.

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.
