An accident between an SUV and a truck in Haryana’s Nuh left Alwar lynching victim Rakbar Khan’s wife and daughter injured and his niece dead along with the driver of the vehicle they were travelling in on Sunday morning.
Sahila (10) and Asmina were admitted to the Medical College in Nuh but were referred to New Delhi as the nature of their injuries was serious. Sanjeeda (19) died in the accident along with driver Salim (25).
