Two bikers were killed in an accident on JJ flyover on Sunday night. Two Bajaj Pulsars crashed into each other around 10.45pm near the CST-end of the flyover, resulting in other vehicles smashing into the bikes, the police said.

Although two-wheelers are banned on the JJ flyover, bikers continue to break the law.

According to the MRA Marg police, both bikes were carrying pillion riders.

“One of the bikes was heading towards Nagpada from CST, but the rider stopped midway and started to take a U-turn. Another bike coming from the other direction crashed into the vehicle,” said an officer from the south region control room, adding that a Mercedes Benz also hit the bikes.

“Two youngsters sustained serious injuries and were taken to JJ hospital. They were declared dead on admission,” said Dilip Ugale inspector, MRA Marg police station.

At the time of going to press, the police were still to identify the bikers and were recording the statements of eyewitnesses.

According to preliminary probe, Ugale said, the victims were residents of Ghatkopar.

On November 8, a 22-year-old motorcyclist, Mohammed Rafiq, and his sister-in-law, Asmaa Shafiq, 21, who was riding pillion, were killed after he lost control over his bike and crashed into the railings on JJ flyover.
