Despite additional police personnel being deployed for the safety and security of kanwariyas, a devotee was killed in a hit-and-run case while two children were injured. An unidentified vehicle hit the three at Hero Honda Chowk and fled the spot.

The incident took place in the early hours of Sunday morning when 70-year-old Rampal was walking with his grandson Jayant (9) and his brother’s grandson Himanshu (12). They were walking on the service lane which has been portioned off for the devotees near Hero Honda Chowk.
