  • The police was yet to register a case against the driver or owners of the tipper

The deceased were identified as Mukand Singh (55) of Jhordan village and his wife Amarjit Kaur (52), whereas the injured was identified as Maninderjit Singh of Noorpura.

Though the police had yet to register an FIR against the driver or owners of the tipper, vehicles involved in the mishap were taken into the custody of the police for necessary further action.

Investigations revealed that the driver of the tipper (PB 03 AJ 7936) had lost control over the vehicle after hitting a motorcycle being driven by Maninderjit Singh when he arrived on the highway from his village side.

Residents of the Noorpura village later held a dharna near the spot to demand compensation and the cost of treatment from the owners and driver of the vehicle. The dharna was lifted in the afternoon following an assurance by the owners of the tipper to undertake the cost of treatment for the injured youth.
