  • Four national-level weightlifters were killed in an accident

"This morning six athletes were going from Delhi to Panipat in their auto, carrying their powerlifting kits, when they met with the accident at Alipur village, near Singhu border between Delhi and Haryana", a police official said. The victims were on the Delhi-Panipat highway in a Swift Dzire auto which police believe was being driven at high speed in drastically reduced visibility due to fog.

DCP (Rohini) Rajneesh Gupta said the deceased have been identified as Tikamchand alias Tinka (27), Saurabh (18), Yogesh (24) and Harish Roy (20).

Another weightlifter, Rohit, 19, is battling for life.

Meanwhile, Yadav is undergoing treatment at Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh and Rohit is being treated at the LNJP Hospital.

Yadav, who was admitted in "extremely critical" condition at the AIIMS Trauma Centre, succumbed on Sunday evening.

He had sustained grievous head injuries and severe internal bleeding.

The private vehicle carrying the six athletes crashed with a road divider, after its driver lost control over the steering, on the road and turned turtle near Alipur village around 4:00am.

The cops rushed to the spot and found that one Maruti Swift met with an accident near a petrol pump while going towards Haryana's Karnal when they were celebrating Rohit's birthday.

"Prima facie, the auto was at very high speed".

Police are also probing the angle of drunken driving. Due to the impact of the crash, the car's roof was shattered.

The accident took place on the Delhi-Chandigarh highway.
