A horrific accident in Haryana’s Nuh resulted in the loss of two lives after a Rolls Royce Phantom, an opulent limousine, collided with a petrol tanker on the New Delhi-Mumbai expressway. The Rolls Royce was reportedly being operated at a speed of 230 km per hour.
According to an earlier report by news agency PTI, three people identified as Divya and Tasbir from Chandigarh, along with Vikas from Delhi, were hospitalised following the accident. The trio was reportedly traveling in the Rolls Royce Phantom at the time of the collision.
In a conversation with NDTV, Narendra Bijaraniya, SP Nuh, confirmed that an FIR has been lodged, and a thorough investigation is underway. He said Vikas Malu (Kuber group owner), one of the occupants of the Rolls Royce, has been admitted to Medanta hospital in Gurugram and is receiving treatment. SP Bijaraniya stated, “Vikas Malu and the other individual accompanying him are undergoing treatment at Medanta hospital and will be involved in the investigation once they are deemed ready. Hospital will be able to give clear update about their condition.”
SP Bijaraniya further verified that Vikas Malu, the individual involved in the accident, is a prominent industrialist and serves as the chairman of the Kuber Group.
Commenting on the preliminary findings based on CCTV footage, the SP Bijaraniya explained that the collision occurred as the tanker executed a U-turn on the Delhi-Mumbai highway while the Rolls Royce Phantom was approaching at an extremely high speed, leading to the tragic impact.
