The auto driver and a local passenger were among the dead.“While the oil tanker was overspeeding, the autorickshaw was overloaded. It seems the tanker driver hit the autorickshaw head-on in a bid to avoid the potholes on the road,” said Jind SP Ashwin. Tanker driver Bachu Khan, a resident of Barmer in Rajasthan, fled after the accident. He was arrested on Wednesday.The police team had a tough time pulling out the auto from under the tanker. The tanker was lifted with the help of two cranes. The victims included brothers, Sanjay and Parminder, from Badtana village. While Sanjay died, Parminder suffered grave injuries.last_img
