Following a complaint from the family of victim Gagandeep Sharma, 26, who along with his friend Rajat Dua died in a road accident in Sarabha Nagar on Saturday night, the police on Tuesday rounded up two class IV employees of Deepak Hospital for allegedly robbing the victims.

The BMW car in which the two victims were travelling along with Atul Bansal, the third friend, had hit the trees and broken into two pieces. Atul was allegedly street racing and the speed was around 160 km/hour.
The police reportedly showed the pictures of the suspects to the kin of Gagandeep who identified one of the suspects as the man who stole Gagan’s gold chain. The police also returned Gagan’s  mobile phones of to his parents  which they found from the spot.

The victim’s mother Renu Sharma who reached the spot after the accident alleged that when Gagan was being shifted to an ambulance of Deepak Hospital, right opposite the accident spot, a guy started removing his gold chain. Since she was in a haste to take his son to hospital, she did not pay heed. She begged the man to first help her save his son and even offered him his gold bangles, but the man forced her to get out of the ambulance.

Sub-Inspector Charan Singh, additional SHO at Sarabha Nagar police station, confirmed that the police were interrogating two employees of hospital for robbing accident victims. He added that a case would be registered after a thorough investigation.
