According to the police, the incident took place around 8 pm, when brothers Amit Kumar and 34-year-old Sachin Kumar were on their way to Alipur from their home in Nuh. Police said Amit was riding the motorcycle while his brother was on the pillion.

A police officer privy to the investigation, requesting anonymity, said near Dhunela village, a motorcyclist hit their motorcycle from behind.

Some passersby rushed them to civil hospital in Sohna, from where they were referred to Safdarjung hospital in Delhi, where Amit died during treatment,” said the officer, adding that Sachin was under treatment and his condition is said to be stable.
