Senior youth Congress leader Gurpreet Singh Bittu Brar, 32, of Khote village in Moga district was killed on Wednesday morning when his car collided head-on with a heavy truck near Nihal Singh Wala.

Brar was nephew of the former Congress minister Darshan Singh Brar. The accident occurred when he was on his way home from Nihal Singh Wala in a Maruti Ritz car with his friends Kulwinder Singh and Gurjepal Singh, both of Khote village. It was the truck that ran over the car near the Patto Heera Singh link road, Inderjit Singh, assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of Nihal Singh Wala police, has said.
