Karnal, September 26
A 35-year-old farmer was allegedly killed, while two others were injured when their tractor-trailer was hit by a canter on the National Highway-44 near Baldi bypass in the wee hours of Sunday.
The incident took place around 4 am when the farmers were going to the Singhu border to join the agitation, which has completed 10 months.
The deceased farmer has been identified as Harjinder Singh of Tarn Taran district in Punjab, while the injured are Kanwaljeet Singh and Sharvan Kumar, also from Tarn Taran. They are undergoing treatment. Harjinder was driving the tractor.
The driver of canter, however, fled the spot after leaving the vehicle behind.
“We have registered a case against the canter driver under Sections 279, 304-A and 337 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). We are probing the case,” said Vijay Kumar, investigation officer.
