Mukherjee Nagar road accident case: 2 dead, 3 critically injured

A late night joy-ride turned tragic as two college students died and three were injured after a 19-year-old student named Diksha Dadu, driving under the influence of alcohol, rammed into a traffic pole. The report added that five friends - three girls and two boys - were returning from a festival at Amity University in Noida when the accident occurred.

Delhi University student Ritesh Dahiya (21), Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University student Siddharth Singh (19), law students at Noida's Amity University Joshita Mohanty (21), Rashi Sharma (20) and Diksha were travelling in the vehicle, the police said.

Dahiya was a student of Sri Venkateswara College while the three women were students of Amity University, Noida. The report mentions that police found alcohol bottles and plastic cups from inside the vehicle and said that drunk driving was the reason for the crash.

The driver was under the influence of alcohol, said Aslam Khan, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Northwest).

The accident occurred at around 2.45 am on the intervening night of March 10 and 11 when the driver of the auto lost control over his vehicle and ended up hitting the central verge at T-Point, Hudson Lines, they said. The auto belonged to Dahiya's father. Bottles of alcohol were recovered from the auto. "It then collided with the divider and hit the light pole on the opposite side of road", a senior police officer told IANS. There were five students in the vehicle, three girls and two boys. The vehicle was being driven by one, Diksha Dadu at the time of the accident.

According to police sources, Dadu was driving without a valid driving license.

Police found alcohol bottles and plastic cups inside the auto and confirmed that the accident was indeed a case of drunk driving. When the locals reported the matter, the bodies were so badly tangled in the vehicle that the body of the auto had to be cut to pull the injured out. The accident occurred at around 2.45 am. She is yet to be discharged from the hospital while Dadu and Mohanty managed to escape with minor injuries. "But when Dahiya got off his seat for a break, Dadu occupied it and insisted that she drive despite Dahiya's resistance", the officer said.

The DCP said that a case has been registered for rash and negligent driving and for causing death due to negligence under IPC sections, at Mukherjee Nagar police station.
