Two doctors died after their two-wheeler allegedly collided with a truck in outer Delhi’s Bawana late night on Thursday.
The accident took place in Bawana sector 3 around 9.30pm. Police said the deceased were identified as chief medical officer Rajesh Rajput (32) and junior resident Gurfan (27) of Maharishi Valmiki Hospital in northwest Delhi. Both lived in the hospital quarters.
“They were in a scooty when they collided with a stationary truck on the spot. The truck driver is on the run,” said a police official.
Police officials said there is a possibility that the victims did not see the truck standing on the road due to the darkness. Another possibility is that the truck driver suddenly pulled the brake, resulted in the accident.
Police said the truck’s rear side has been damaged.
A senior police official said Rajesh was married a year ago and Gurfan was a bachelor.
Rajbeer Singh, a regular commuter in sector 3, saw the victims and called the police to inform them about the accident. Singh said the doctors were lying in a pool of blood when he reached the spot.
“I arrived at the accident spot at least 15 minutes later. I did not waste time and called the police. I wanted to save these men, who later turned out to be doctors,” said Singh, who spotted the truck and a white scooty on the spot.
Fellow doctors of the deceased said Rajesh, who did his MBBS from Russia, had been working at the hospital for the past three years. Gurfan had been working for the past one week.
