Five wrestlers and a driver dead in road mishap in Sangli

Mumbai: Five wrestlers were among six persons killed in a road accident, which left seven injured in Maharashtra's Sangli district early on Saturday.

"The driver has also been charged with relevant sections of the Motor Vehicle Act", the police official added. All the deceased wrestlers belonged to Kranti Kushti Sankul institution, which has been dominating the state-level tournaments in recent years, and were expected to make the grade for the national championships soon. They were returning from Satara after attending a wrestling contest. Apart from the wrestlers and their companion, five other people were injured in the accident, and have been admitted to a Sangli hospital.

The mishap took place in Wangi village in Kadegaon tehsil of Sangli at around 12 midnight on Friday.

A tractor approaching at high-speed rammed into their SUV from the opposite direction, which led to the deaths. "It is very sad and shocking, for us", said Sharad Lad, the institution's secretary, was quoted as saying in an IANS report.

This is the second major road accident in a week's time which has taken the lives of future sportspersons in India.

The accident comes days after five powerlifters were killed in a vehicle accident in Delhi. World champion powerlifter Saksham Yadav, along with four other powerlifters, was travelling in a auto last Sunday, when the vehicle met with an accident near the Singhu border in outer Delhi's Alipur area.

The athletes were coming from Panipat and heading towards Delhi when the accident took place.
