Solan, October 11

Two persons were killed and one was injured when the pick-up utility vehicle (HP-16-4084) they were travelling in plunged into a gorge at Jagher village on the Chaila-Solan road in Rajgarh late last night.

The deceased have been identified as Anil (25) and Rishu (32), both residents of Rajgarh in Sirmaur district. Sunil (20) was injured in the accident.

SHO, Rajgarh, Baldev said the accident occurred last night and its cause was yet to be ascertained. The occupants were returning from Theog in Shimla district when the mishap occurred.

Rescue operations were initiated this morning by the police.

“The absence of crash barriers on this road was a major cause of frequent accidents in which several young lives have been lost. Road is in a deplorable condition,” said Baldev.

It was yet to be ascertained as to who was driving the vehicle as the injured youth was admitted to Solan hospital.

Further probe was underway. A case for rash and negligent driving causing death would be registered, said the SHO.
