New Delhi, December 10
Lok Sabha member Chaudhary Munawwar Hasan was on Wednesday killed in a road accident near Palwal in Haryana, about 85 km from New Delhi.
A speeding truck hit Hasan’s car near Haryana’s Faridabad town while he was on his way to Delhi to attend the parliament session beginning Wednesday.
Forty-five-year-old Hasan “was brought dead to Apollo Hospital at 3 am,” a hospital spokesperson said.
The MP, who was elected on a Samajwadi Party (SP) ticket from Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh in 2004, had defected to BSP at the time of July 22 trust vote.
Hasan was expelled by the SP, which also filed a petition seeking his disqualification from the House. The petition is pending with the Lok Sabha Speaker.
