Jamia student dies in road accident
A 25-year-old student of Jamia Millia Islamia died in a road accident on Sunday on the Delhi-Jaipur Expressway.
Syed-ur-Rehman, a resident of Leh’s Turtuk village, was enrolled for MA at Jamia. According to TOI report, Rehman and his other friend Mohammad Zaid who were travelling to Delhi around 11.30 am on a Royal Enfield met with an accident when the motorcycle apparently lost balance and hit the parapet wall of the flyover, police said.
The ferocity of the accident could be understood from the fact that both the youths fell 20 feet down on the highway below.
Rehman was declared dead on arrival while Zaid succumbed to his injuries around 8.30pm while undergoing treatment, said the report.
“The bike had hit the wall (of the flyover), which is 2-2.5 feet tall, and the men fell down. Zaid was in a serious condition when he was taken to the hospital and there seemed to be little chance of his survival. The motorcycle, however, was not damaged in the incident,” an investigating officer said, adding that families of both the victims have been informed.
“While Zaid’s family has reached the hospital, Rehman’s family is likely to reach Delhi on Monday,” the officer added.
