Six youths from Nohar town of Rajasthan, who had come to Sirsa to watch a movie at the OHM Cine Garden here, died last night when their Chevrolet Tavera hit a tree.
Five of the six victims were between the age of 23 and 26. Sources said the victims worked in different offices in Nohar, 40 km from here. Friday being a Janamashtami holiday, they planned to watch a movie in Sirsa.
The sources said after watching the movie, they shopped in Sirsa markets and then had their dinner after drinks. While returning, one of the victims, Sandeep, asked the vehicle’s owner, Subhash, to allow him to drive Tavera.
However, Sandeep, allegedly failed to notice a turn on the Jamal road and the vehicle skidded off the road. Om Saini, a local resident, who was following the vehicle on his motorcycle, said the driver perhaps pressed the accelerator, as the vehicle hit a tree at a very high speed. The accident was so fierce that the front side of the vehicle was completely damaged.
Saini said when he rushed towards the vehicle, he heard a victim crying for help. He said he also raised an alarm and soon labourers from a nearby brick kiln and farmers irrigating their fields rushed towards the accident site, hardly 2 km from Sirsa town.
After breaking open a window with great difficulty, they noticed that three youths, Sandeep, Amit and Tarun, were lying unconscious. An ambulance was called to take them to the General Hospital. While Suresh and Subhash died at the Sirsa hospital, the sixth victim, Jabbar, died when he was being shifted to the PGIMS, Rohtak.
