Groom’s father among 5 killed in accident

Rewari, February 9

Five members of a marriage party, including the groom’s father, were killed and two others, including a child, injured when their Maruti Swift car collided with a tractor-trailer near Gangachay Ahir village on the NH-71 on Friday evening.

The deceased were identified as Rajender (60), car driver Papender (50), Daksh (7), Prachi (7) and Kaku (5) of Beri in Jhajjar. The injured — Sanjay and eight-year-old Aditi — were admitted to a private hospital, where their condition was stated to be critical. Sanjay lost his children Prachi and Kaku in the accident.

Rajender, his son-in-law Sanjay and others were going to Gukulgarh village in the ‘baraat’ of his son. The driver reportedly lost control over the vehicle and hit the tractor-trailer near the toll plaza in Gangachay Ahir.

The police reached the spot and took the injured to the trauma centre, where the three children and two men were declared brought dead. Ram Avtar, SHO, said investigation was on to ascertain the cause of the accident. — TNS
