Three engineering students from Amity University, Noida died after meeting with an accident on NH1 while heading to Murthal for food. The students were traveling to Murthal when around 2am mid-night their rental Mahindra Scorpio collided with a tractor. After the accident, some of the victims tried to make their way out from the SUV when the bricks from the tractor fell on them.
Seven were badly injured from the collision while three were killed. The car was badly mangled from the impact and gas cutters had to be used to bring the victims out from the car.
A passerby, Parmanand Dubey, was returning home after attending a function in Rajouri Garden. He claimed that there were many people gathered around the accident spot, but instead of helping the victims they were making videos of the accident spot.
