The accident took place near the DMW in the late evening hours. Onlookers informed my brother’s co-workers and our family about the accident. He died due a stray animal roaming on the road. The family should be compensated and his son given a government job.

She said: “He was on a motorcycle. The accident took place near the DMW in the late evening hours and some onlookers informed our factory workers and our family. He was taken to a hospital and died during treatment.”

She said her brother died due to the presence of a stray animal on the road. “The family should be compensated and his son should be given a government job.”

In another accident in Samana, Manpeet Singh (33) died after his motorcycle rammed into a stray animal. He was taken to a government hospital and later to Columbia Hospital, Patiala. Investigating Officer Lali Ram said the family of the man later decided not to get a post-mortem conducted.

In another accident that took place in Samana on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday, a youth died while another was injured.

The boys had come from Bathinda. Resham Singh, father of one the boys, told the police that his son, along with a friend, had come to the city for personal work. He alleged their two-wheeler was hit by another vehicle. A stray animal was also found dead at the accident spot. The police have now registered a case under Sections 304 (A), 337 (causing hurt to any person by any act so rashly or negligently as to endanger human life) and 427 (mischief) of the IPC.
