According to Senior Superintendent of Police Rajesh Pandey, Sub Inspector Pradeep Sharma and Constable Devinder Yadav were returning after a raid when owing to dense fog, their driver could not see a deep pond adjoining the road and the vehicle plunged in the water drowning all seven passengers.

“Among the deceased was a middle-aged woman and her child,” Pandey said adding that the identity and age of the victims was yet to be ascertained.
