A 25-year-old Saudi Arabian died after his superbike, a Suzuki Hayabusa, crashed into a divider on the Gurgaon-Faridabad Road on Saturday.

The police have identified the deceased as Salman Hussain Falarjani, who worked as a counsellor in the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Delhi and lived in Ambience Island in Gurgaon.

The police said the man was riding his 1300cc white Suzuki Hayabusa with four other bikers around 8:15am when his two-wheeler hit a divider at a U-turn near Bandwari crossing on the Gurgaon–Faridabad Road, leaving him severely injured.

His friends rushed him to Paras Hospital where he succumbed to injuries a couple of hours later. The police said the body will be handed over to the Saudi Embassy after a post-mortem examination on Monday.

“His friends said that he was driving at a normal speed when his two-wheeler hit the divider near Bandhwari crossing. The post-mortem examination formalities will be completed on Monday,” Amit Kumar, station house officer of DLF Phase 1 police station, said.

The police were informed about the accident around 10:45am. Before the police team from DLF Phase 1 police station could reach the hospital, Salman succumbed to injuries around 11:45 am.

The two-wheeler with a Delhi registration number was purchased in 2016.

“We generally book bike riders for rash driving under IPC 304A (causing death due to negligent driving). Apart from that, the police also impound the vehicle and impose a fine on the vehicle owner. But, we cannot keep a watch on bikers all the time,” an officer said.
