Jalandhar, October 27

Congress MLA from the Jalandhar West constituency Sushil Rinku and two others were injured when the Fortuner SUV they were travelling in hit a tractor-trailer near Nawanshahr this morning.

The accident took place on the Nawanshahr-Chandigarh highway at Jadla village, 10 km ahead of Nawanshahr town, around 10.30 am when the MLA was heading to Chandigarh from Jalandhar for a meeting. The front portion of the vehicle hit the tractor-trailer coming from the wrong side.

The MLA suffered minor injuries on his left wrist, hand and legs. His driver Vicky was seriously injured as his legs and hip were fractured. His gunman too was hurt. All three were taken to a private hospital in Nawanshahr.

MLA Hardev Laddi, who too was heading to Chandigarh around the same time in his car, reached the hospital to take care of his colleague. Nawanshahr MLA Angad Saini also called on Rinku, who was discharged for being given preliminary treatment. He came back to Jalandhar in the afternoon. — TNS
