A 23-year-old model was killed while three others sustained grievous injuries in a road accident on the Zirakpur flyover in the wee hours of Monday.
The deceased has been identified as Rajwinder Singh alias Raja, a resident of Chohla Sahib in Tarn Taran, while the injured have been identified as Honey and Kuldeep, both residents of Ambala; and Jimmy of Abohar in Fazilka.
The incident happened around 1.30am when the victims were returning to Chandigarh after having dinner at a restaurant in Zirakpur. Assistant sub-inspector Bhushan said Rajwinder, who was driving the car, lost control at a curve on the flyover, and his car tossed over the divider.
Harpreet Singh, who was in the ill-fated car, said when the car crashed into the divider, Rajwinder fell out of the car as he was not wearing the seat belt. “If he were using the seat belt, his life could have been saved,” he added.
After receiving the information, the victims were rushed to the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector 32, where the doctors declared Rajwinder brought dead. Rajwinder Singh had featured in videos of Punjabi songs and was shooting for another one.
