Abohar, December 10

Two persons were killed and two sustained injuries in road mishaps due to fog today, the police said.

Geeta (22) of Balluana village, who was going to attend a marriage ceremony in Ghallu village today morning was killed and her maternal brother Jashan (20), who was driving the motorcycle, received injuries as a vehicle hit them near the Panchayat Samiti office on the outskirts of Abohar town. Jashan was admitted to the Civil Hospital here.

In another mishap, Mohit Saraswat (26) of Jaitsar was killed, and his friend Akashdeep (23) of Sirsa was hurt as the car, in which they were travelling after attending a marriage function in Srivijaynagar, overturned after it hit the boundary wall of a canal-bridge. Akashdeep could not notice the canal-bridge due to fog near Chak 5 GB. He has been hospitalised in Sriganganagar.

Meanwhile, four persons escaped unhurt as the car, in which they were travelling, skidded into Sadulshehar minor (sub-canal), 27 km from here on the Abohar-Hanumangarh highway, as the driver lost control while negotiating a turn due to dense fog. Dr Lakhwinder Singh, a private practitioner in Ladhuka, Fazilka, Harpreet Singh of Santpura and two others climbed on electricity poles, near the rail track and escaped as the water level in the canal was low. Some people came to their rescue by arranging wood fire near the site.
