Ghaziabad, 19th August, 2022: Four members of the same family were killed when their van collided with a parked vehicle on the Delhi-Meerut Expressway (DME) in Ghaziabad on Thursday afternoon. According to police, by the time they arrived at the scene, the truck driver had absconded with the vehicle.

According to authorities, the incident occurred at 1pm when a van travelling from Haridwar to Rohtak in Haryana collided with a tree near Kushaliya village, which is under the jurisdiction of Masuri police station.

Sumit Kumar (34), his son Yagit, Tej Pal (48), and his wife Babli (40) were identified as the four victims by police. Sumit’s 10-year-old daughter Nikita was the sole survivor, and she was sent to a hospital in Delhi for treatment.

“The girl is the sole survivor, and all four victims were killed on the spot.” They were on their way from Haridwar to their hometown in Rohtak. When they arrived at Kushaliya, their van collided with an unidentified stationary vehicle, which was later determined to be a truck,” said Iraj Raja, superintendent of police (rural).

“The truck driver and indeed the vehicle fled.” We’ve assigned personnel to track down the vehicle using CCTV footage from the DME. The driver of the mysterious vehicle will be apprehended shortly. “The families of the deceased have been notified,” said SP Raja.

On May 25, a man and a woman were killed and four others were injured after a van flipped on the DME near the Masuri police station area. According to authorities, the driver lost control while attempting to dodge a two-wheeler.

Two-wheelers and three-wheelers are not permitted to enter the DME.

According to Ghaziabad traffic police officers, the entry of two and three-wheelers on the expressway has already been prohibited, and violators face a 20,000 punishment.

“The traffic police perform a regular drive, and approximately 250 challans are given on a daily basis.” In addition, stationary cars are strictly prohibited. They are ticketed for breaking the ‘no parking’ rule. “The drives will be strengthened,” stated Superintendent of Police Ramanand Kushwaha (traffic).
