Four Kanpur residents were killed in a road accident that took place on the Yamuna Expressway in Mathura at around 9.30am on Sunday.
The accident took place when the car in which the victims were travelling, rammed into a tanker.
Among the deceased are two women. All of them were heading towards Noida from Kanpur to attend a function.
Three of the deceased have been identified as Mohammad Moinuddin, Abdul Raes, Shahjehan Begum. Another woman’s identity is yet to be established.
The tragic incident took place at 113 milestone, three kilometres before Raya Interchange in Mathura district. “The bodies were sent for post mortem examination and family members were informed about the accident. All the four victims, including the two women, were going to Noida,” said Ravindra Yadav, sub-inspector at Raya police station of the Mathura district.
The Raya police had to arrange equipment to cut the mangled remains of the car to pull out the bodies trapped in it. The rear part of the car was totally damaged after ramming into the tanker.
“The damage of rear part of the car has made the matter complex and needs to be worked out,” said Yadav.
Meanwhile, SP (Rural) for Mathura Aditya Shukla declined to assign exact reason for the accident which took place on Yamuna Expressway.
“The car had smashed into the tanker and was pulled out after much effort. Exact reasons are yet to be worked,” he said.
“It appears that driver might have applied sudden brake in the moving car which made it spin and then it smashed into the tanker,” said a resident.
