Monday, 18 November 2019 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

In a tragic road mishap reported from South east Delhi, a 19-year-old physiotherapy student was killed when his speeding car overturned after hitting a kerb and ramming into a water tanker in the early hours of Sunday.

Identified as Ansh Girdhar, a resident of Kalkaji Extension, he was returning home when the incident occurred on the Okhla Estate Road, police said adding that they were informed about it around 3.29 am.

Girdhar was driving his Baleno car at high speed and lost control over the steering in order to save his vehicle from a tree trunk lying on the road. The car hit the pavement and then a water tanker parked on the roadside, following which it overturned, an officer said.

A badly injured Girdhar was rushed to the AIIMS where he was declared dead by the doctors, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Chinmoy Biswal said, adding that the car was found in a severely damaged condition at the accident site.

Girdhar was pursuing a physiotherapy course from an institute at Vasant Kunj. A case has been registered at the Govindpuri police station and the body has been handed over to the family after a post-mortem, the police said.
