A trader Vinod Kumar of Khanna, father of the deceased Harshit Kumar (19), in his complaint to SSP on Wednesday, said that his son was driving back home on the night of June 11. As he reached near village Alur, an over-speeding truck, who was trying to escape after seeing police checkpoint near Pristine Mall in Khanna, hit his son’s vehicle.
