1 Killed, 2 Injured After Speeding Sports Bikes Collide Head-On In Delhi

2 bikers have been admitted to Delhi's AIIMS Trauma Centre with serious injuries

New Delhi:  A 20-year-old man died and two others were injured after two sports bikes collided head-on in Delhi's Qutab Institutional Area, police said on Monday. While the police are investigating if it was a case of stunt riding, family members of the young man, and those who were injured refuted any such possibility.

The accident happened at around 9 AM on Sunday when one of the riders, Raman, a resident of Uttam Nagar, was on his way to have paranthas and his bike collided with the other bike. 20-year-old Raman, who was pursuing a draftsman's course, was rushed to Rockland Hospital where the doctors declared him dead, a senior police officer said.

The other rider - 27-year-old Charles Brian - who works as an HR Manager in a Gurgaon-based company, along with Pradeep Nair, who was the pillion rider, suffered serious injuries and were admitted to the AIIMS Trauma Centre, the officer said.

"Since both the bikes involved are high-end sports bikes, and were being driven at a high speed, police are investigating whether the riders were indulging in stunts," the officer added. The official said the impact of the collision was such that both the bikes were badly damaged.

"The families of those involved in the accident have dismissed the claims about stunt biking. They are saying that their children do not indulge in over-speeding or stunt biking," the police officer said.

Charles and Pradeep haven't yet been declared fit for giving their statement to the police, so the sequence of events leading to the accident will be known only after they recover, he said.

Eyewitnesses and locals have told the police that the bikers were trying stunts and that the stretch usually sees a lot of stunt bikers.

Initially, a case of rash and negligent driving, and causing hurt by an act endangering the life of others was registered, but after Raman's death, the section of causing death by negligence was also added, the police officer said.
