4 powerlifting players killed in road accident in India

The accident took place at around 4 a.m. near Alipur village, close to Delhi's Singhu border with Haryana.

Yadav, a resident of Nagloi in north Delhi, won gold for India in powerlifting world championship held in Moscow previous year. The possibility of drunken driving has also not been ruled out.

According to the police, the vehicle first hit a divider and then crashed into an electricity pole.

Saksham Yadav died in the evening at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) trauma centre here.

The police said that the other deceased have been identified as Tikamchand alias Tinka (27), Yogesh (24), Saurabh (18), Harish Roy (20). The impact of the contact was severe enough to wrench the roof of the auto entirely off. All the other athletes including Bali were residents of Timarpur in north Delhi. The cause of the accident is said to be dense fog that continues to blanket Delhi-NCR amid the intensifying cold wave conditions. "We immediately rushed to the spot and found that one Maruti Swift DZire vehicle 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.

Preliminary police inquiry had revealed that the mishap happened around 4 am when the driver of the auto in which the six men were travelling lost control over the speeding vehicle and crashed into a divider near a petrol pump. "A police team, which arrived on the spot, used cutters to cut the auto in order to extract the six men, four of them already dead, from it", said a senior police officer.

The injured were admitted to the Max hospital in Shalimar Bagh in New Delhi. Some liquor bottles were found in the auto. It can not be ruled out that the bad weather conditions or fog led to the accident.
