Jalandhar, November 1
Three youths were killed after the Tata Indica car they were travelling in collided with the road divider, near Pathankot Chowk, on the Jalandhar-Amritsar highway in the wee hours on Thursday. Among the four youths, who were driving back to Amritsar from Jalandhar, three died on the spot. The fourth one has sustained severe injuries. The deceased have been identified as Sonu, Naresh and Pawan. Akash was rushed to a nearby hospital.
Investigating officer Seema Gupta of Division 8 police station said the youths, in their late 20s, were apparently drunk when the accident took place. While returning from a party, the driver lost control of the car and bumped into the road divider. A team of the police control room (PCR), which was on patrolling duty, spotted the mangled car and removed the bodies. Gupta said Akash, who was admitted to a hospital, had gained consciousness. He is said to be stable.
The youths were residents of the Lahori Gate. They had gone to Jalandhar to attend a party. All of them, barring Akash, were married.
