Two students killed in Delhi road accident

In a tragic road accident in Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar, a speedy vehicle killed 2 students and 3 were critically injured on Sunday. The three girls injured in the accident were law students from Amity University in Noida.

The driver was under the influence of alcohol, said Aslam Khan, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Northwest).

Witnesses and locals told police that soon as the auto reached a T-Point at Hudson Lane in Mukherjee Nagar, the driver of the speeding vehicle lost control and it crashed into a divider.

According to the police, the deceased have been identified as Ritesh Dahiya (21) and Siddhartha (20), while the three injured girls are Diksha Dadu, Joshita Mohanty and Rashi Sharma, all are in the age group of 19-20 years. Cops recovered alcohol bottles from the ravaged vehicle.

Dadu, 19, was returning from a late night party along with her four friends when she crashed the vehicle into a traffic signal pole at around 2.45 am.

Police said the woman driver was arrested after being discharged from the hospital. "For hours before the accident, the vehicle was being driven by its owner, Ritesh Dahiya". Localities who were present at the spot told police that the high-speed vehicle tumbled down the road for few meters. The airbags of the Hyundai i20 auto were deployed on impact and saved two girls in the front seats from suffering serious injuries.

"Medical examination showed Dadu had 137 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood in her body at the time of the accident. The two men had died by then", Ashok Arora, a shopkeeper who was present at the time of the accident was quoted as saying by HT.

According to police sources, Dadu was driving without a valid driving license. When locals reported the matter to the police, the bodies were so badly tangled in the decimated vehicle that the auto had to be cut open, and the injured were pulled out. The accident occurred at around 2.45 am. "But when Dahiya got off his seat for a break, Dadu occupied it and insisted that she drive despite Dahiya's resistance", the officer said. The incident happened at Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar on Sunday.
