Two men fell off a flyover in Geeta Colony on Sunday afternoon, after the rickshaw they were travelling in lost control. According to police, the victims, identified as Mantu Kumar (20) and Shamshad (24), were declared brought dead by doctors at LNJP Hospital.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Shahdara) Nupur Prasad said the two men were travelling on a cycle rickshaw being driven by one Raju. “The rickshaw lost its balance and the two men fell off the Geeta Colony flyover and landed on the road below. We are considering legal action against the driver,” said a senior police officer.
After the accident, several commuters gathered at the spot, slowing down traffic in the area. As people started assisting in clearing the traffic, a PCR call was made by a passerby and an ambulance was called to the spot. The two were then taken to the hospital.
