Delhi University Students Killed After Car Hits Divider, Topples Over”

"Dadu's learner license also expired in October past year", said DCP Aslam Khan.

A joyride turned tragic for five students from different universities when their vehicle rammed into a divider, leaving two boys dead and three girls critically injured.

Diksha Dadu, a first-year Amity University student, was driving the Hyundai i20 that belonged to Ritesh Dahiya, a second-year B.Sc student of Sri Venkateswara College, who was seated behind her. "For hours before the accident, the vehicle was being driven by its owner, Ritesh Dahiya". The officer added that alcohol bottles and plastic disposable cups were found in the wreckage. Police said while Sidhartha and Dahiya died on the spot, Sharma has sustained a fracture in her collarbone.

Police said the vehicle had rolled up a road divider, knocked down a metal board, a cement slab and a marble signboard before flipping and colliding with a traffic signal.

The accident occurred at around 2.45 am on the intervening night of March 10 and 11 when the driver of the auto lost control over his vehicle and ended up hitting the central verge at T-Point, Hudson Lines, they said. The speed of the vehicle was such that it overturned and tumbled down the road for a few meters.

DCP northwest, Aslam Khan said that both the boys died as a result of the accident.

"Medical examination showed Dadu had 137 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood in her body at the time of the accident".

Three women occupants of the auto, including the driver, sustained injuries, police said.

According to Sagar Arora, a local resident and one of the rescuers, Dadu was the first to come out of the auto.

Police said that Diksha Dadu and Rashi Sharma were sitting in the front seats. When the locals reported the matter, the bodies were so badly tangled in the vehicle that the body of the auto had to be cut to pull the injured out.

"The accident occurred at around 2.45 a.m when Rashi was going to drop Sidharth and Ritesh in Mukerjee Nagar". She is yet to be discharged from Trauma Centre while Diksha and Joshita managed to escape with minor injuries. "But when Dahiya got off his seat for a break, Dadu occupied it and insisted that she drive despite Dahiya's resistance", the officer said.

Dadu was arrested under various IPC sections for causing death due to negligence (304A), rash and risky driving (279) and drunken driving. The incident happened at Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar on Sunday. Further investigation is underway, they added.
