Ashutosh, a resident of Delhi, was pursuing BBA from a private university. He was staying in Patna before he shifted to Delhi three years ago.

According to police, Ashutosh had left from his college hostel in Greater Noida to visit his mother in Delhi, who has been admitted to a hospital following an illness.

Police have, prima facie, ruled out any drunk driving, and are investigating if the victim fell asleep on the wheel.

Janata Dal (United) member Shailendra Pratap Singh, a close friend of Surajbhan Singh and former LJP spokesperson said, “Ashutosh was a fine young man. The family is in grief and shock. Both parents are not in a state to speak to anyone. They will receive the body at Patna airport and begin Ashutosh’s final journey.”

This is the second instance in which a Lok Janshakti Party member lost a child to an accident. In May 2017, Rajiv Singh, son of LJP MP Rama Kishore Singh, died in a road accident near Allahabad.
