Three people, including two from Myanmar, were killed in two separate accidents in outer and east Delhi on Wednesday.

“The first accident was reported from the Alipur area when the victims, two Myanmarese nationals identified as Van Lakuk, 17, and Lakuk Vik, 25, were crossing the road at 2:30am on Tuesday night,” said a senior police officer.

The two were run over by a speeding, unidentified heavy vehicle and died on the spot. “They used to work for a catering company and were putting up at a rented accommodation in west Delhi’s Uttam Nagar. They were rushed to the Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital where they were pronounced dead on arrival,” the officer said.

The preliminary medical examination has revealed that such was the impact of the hit that the duo’s skulls were completely crushed and there were several fractures in their limbs.

In a similar incident, a 50-year-old cyclist, identified as Nigam Singh, died after he was hit by a speeding car in east Delhi’s Anand Vihar at 9am. “Nigam was near the Anand Vihar ISBT when a speeding Wagon R car rammed into him from behind and ran him over. Nigam was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead,” said a senior police officer.

Separate cases of causing death due to rash and negligent driving have been lodged at the respective police stations.
