Making most of the tragic road mishap that claimed the lives of two friends in Sarabha Nagar on late Saturday night, some locals insensitively robbed one of the victims of his gold chain and mobile phones.

Renu Sharma, mother of Gagandeep Sharma, a resident of Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, said on getting to know of the mishap, she, along with some family members, rushed to the spot, and found some onlookers helping the police lift the injured into an ambulance.

It was then that she saw a man taking off her son’s gold chain right in front of her. A frantically crying Renu could only tell the man that she was ready to give him anything to help save her son’s life.

Besides, Gagandeep’s Blackberry and Apple iphone 6 mobiles phones have been missing since the mishap. The phones are switched off.

Meanwhile, police commissioner Pramod Ban said the police were investigating the accident, and the case had not been closed. The police would take appropriate action after completion of the investigation, he added.

‘Live fast die young’

Rajat Dua, the second victim of the mishap, had updated his Whatsapp status as ‘Live fast die young’.

The status had remained unchanged for months. After the incident, Atul Bansal, the only survivor of the mishap, deactivated his Facebook account, which had images and videos of him drifting in the same BMW 320i car that claimed the lives of his two friends.

BMW becomes headache for cops

The BMW 320i car that split into two following a collision with roadside trees in Sarabha Nagar has become a headache for the police. As the car is case property, it was moved to the Sarabha Nagar police station. Meanwhile, residents, who saw pictures of the car in newspapers and social media, started thronging the police station to have a glimpse of the car that split into two, a rare occurrence.

Fed up of people clicking its pictures and touching it, which could affect the investigation, police have decided to move the car inside the compound wall of the police station. SHO inspector Amrinder Singh said he had asked the cops to dump the car inside the station’s premises.
