Three members of a family were killed in a road accident on National Highway 54, near Thathian Mahatan village, 18 km from here, in the wee hours of Wednesday. The deceased have been identified as Narinder Singh (55), his wife Balwinder Kaur (50) and daughter Rajbir Kaur (18) of Sarhali Kalan village. The victims (labourers) were going to a brick-kiln on their three-wheeled motorcycle.

Jagjit Singh, son of deceased Narinder Singh, said his parents and sister had left from the home around 5 am. He said his father and sister died on the spot and mother died on way to the hospital.

Jagjit said when he came back from the hospital blood stains and body parts were scattered at the accident site, which is part of a busy road. A police party reached the spot very late, he said. Despite repeated attempts, Baljit Singh Dhillon, SP (Traffic), could not be contacted as he did not respond to phone calls.

The Sarhali police have registered a case under Sections 304-A, 279 and 427 of the IPC. The bodies have been sent to the Civil Hospital for post mortem.
