Kanpur: Two teenage NDA (National Defence Academy) aspirants, who had gone for sprinting workouts, died after falling off an overbridge due to an alleged hit-an-run by a vehicle on the national highway in Etawah district on Monday.
According to police, Anmol (16) son of Ravi Yadav and Raj Yadav (16), son Santosh Yadav of Adda Nihal locality under Ekdil police station, who were preparing for selection in Army had gone for sprinting workouts at the National highway during the wee hours of Monday. “As soon as they reached the overbridge near Ekta colony, a speeding vehicle hit the two from rear and they flung off and landed on the service road underneath — around 15ft below,” said the police.
The two, who happened to be cousins, were rushed to the district hospital, where doctors declared them dead on arrival. The driver along with vehicle fled the spot.
The police further said that the incident happened around 5 am on the overbridge near Manikpur turn close to Ekta colony on the Etawah-Agra National highway.
“A case has been registered under sections 337 (whoever causes hurt to any person by doing any act so rashly or negligently as to endanger human life, or the personal safety of others, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to six months) and 304 A (whoever causes the death of any person by doing any rash or negligent act not amounting to culpable homicide, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both) of Indian Penal Code against the driver, who managed to flee the site,” said police.
While Anmol was a student of class XIth, Raj was pursuing class Xth. “The two were preparing for NDA exam, and regularly took part in sprinting workouts sessions near the National highway,” said Vikas, brother of deceased Anmol.
The police shifted the bodies to mortuary for postmortem examination. “Massive searches are underway to make the arrest of vehicle driver possible,” said SP rural Dr Ram Yash Singh.
