Ludhiana, January 14

Rash and reckless driving on city roads claimed three lives during the past 48 hours.

A youth, Arjun, a resident of Mahavir Colony in Haibowal, was hit by a speeding white car near Ram Sharnam Mandir on Hambran Road while returning home from work on a Honda Active scooter with his co-worker Amit Kumar. A critically injured Arjun was admitted to the DMCH where he died during treatment on January 12. On a complaint lodged by Amit Kumar, the police have registered a case under Sections 279, 304-A and 427 of the IPC.

In another incident, Bhagwant Singh (38) of Doraha was hit by a speeding car while coming from the Kohara side towards Sahnewal on a Honda Activa scooter with his mother near Grain Market, Sahnewal.

Bhagwant fell on the road and sustained grievous injuries. He succumbed to his injuries on Thursday at a local hospital. On a complaint lodged by Amarjit Kaur, the mother of the deceased, the police have registered a case.

An unknown middle-aged man was spotted lying dead on the main road behind Oswal Cancer Hospital by a tea vendor, Kamal Kumar, on Thursday morning. The deceased was apparently hit by a speeding Mahindra Bolero pick-up vehicle, which went out of control due to bursting of one of its tyres and later hitting against a wall. The driver of the vehicle (bearing registration number PB 12T 1587) seemed to have fled, leaving the vehicle on the spot.

The police have impounded the vehicle and have booked the unidentified driver under sections 279 and 304-A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
