Kernalganj SHO Nirbhay Narayan Singh said Rehan Khan, 17, and his cousin Shehzad Khan, 20, who was riding on a motorcycle, were hit by the vehicle near a school.

The injured woman, Sita Devi (60), has been admitted to hospital and police personnel have been deployed in the area to ensure law and order.

The SUV that hit the duo lost control, the SHO told news agency PTI.

The SUV, UP32HW1800, is registered in the name of Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh's educational institute.

The police have seized the SUV and arrested its driver, Lavkush Srivastava, The Indian Express reported.

Additional superintendent of police, Gonda, Radhey Shyam Rai said they were recording the driver’s statement to understand the sequence of events, the report added.

The IE report, citing another police officer, claimed that a preliminary inquiry revealed that on Wednesday morning, Karan Singh’s convoy, consisting of four vehicles, was passing through Karnalganj. While three vehicles crossed the railway crossing, the fourth vehicle, which was later involved in the accident, stayed back as a train passed.

After the train passed, the driver of the fourth vehicle allegedly sped up to catch up with the other vehicles. The SUV collided with a motorcycle coming from the opposite direction near a petrol pump, it added.

Police are investigating accounts that the motorcyclist swerved to avoid an elderly woman crossing the road. Upon witnessing the incident, the woman fell unconscious, officers said.
