On Monday evening, an auto-rickshaw driver was murdered and two passengers were injured after their three-wheeler collided with a truck parked on the roadside near Ramgarh Bhullar village. Sukhwinder Singh of Ferozepur, the truck driver, has been detained. The accused said that his truck had developed a mechanical problem, prompting him to pull over to the side of the road. The complainant, Rajiv Kumar of Ishar Nagar, Jagraon, said he was riding his motorbike behind his brother’s auto-rickshaw when he observed him smash into a stalled vehicle parked beside a police pump on the Sidhwan Bet to Bhundri village stretch, which was obscured by deep fog.

At the Sadar Jagraon police station, Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Anwar Masih, who is investigating the case, said the accused had been charged under Sections 304A (death by carelessness), 337 (endangering life), and 427 (damages) of the Indian Penal Code.
