Nahan, April 2

The driver of the borewell truck was reportedly going from Nahan towards Paonta Sahib when the accident occurred. Eyewitnesses said that the truck driver first hit a person riding an Activa scooter near Puruwala. Instead of halting the truck, the driver drove away at a high speed and hit another man walking along the Ranbaxy Chowk near Paonta Sahib, killing him on the spot.

The deceased has been identified as Hardev Singh (40), aka Bablu, a resident of Sangrah. Meanwhile, the scooter rider, identified as Kala Singh, a resident of Kolar, suffered severe injuries on the head, chest, and stomach. He is admitted to a private hospital in a critical condition. The police registered a case against the truck driver and started investigation.
