A student of Amity University was killed and another injured in an accident around 1 am. on Monday near HCL in Sector 3. The injured student is still critical at a local private hospital.

Ankur Chawla and Puneet Relhan were on their way back from Naya Bans after having dinner when a truck coming from the opposite direction collided head on with their motorcycle. The truck driver fled leaving behind the truck.

“Ankur’s father Rakesh Chawla is a veterinary doctor at Karnal. His grand father was the former Vice-Chancellor of Kurushetra University. Ankur had last talked to his father a few hours before the accident,” a police officer said.
