Faridkot, September 4

Two youths from Faridkot lost their lives in an early morning road accident in West Vancouver, Canada. While another youth sustained serious injuries, a 22-year-old youth from Punjab, allegedly driving the car at the time of crash on Thursday, has been taken into custody under charges of criminal negligence causing death and bodily harm to others.

The deceased have been identified as 20-year-old Kulbir Singh of Bargari village and 19-year-old Sidant Garg of Faridkot town. All four youths in the car were in Canada on study visa. With travel restrictions on in the wake of Covid-19, the families of the deceased have urged the state government to help them repatriate the bodies. Sources said the bodies transferred by air required to be embalmed and hermetically sealed to be able to fly, making it a lengthy and expensive process. — TNS
