Police have registered a case and ordered investigations to ascertain the actual reason behind the accident.

In a shocking incident that took place in New Delhi, four powerlifters were killed when their vehicle met with an accident near the Singhu border in outer Delhi's Alipur area on Sunday morning.

According to primary investigation, the auto in which these athletes were travelling hit a road divider and crashed into a pole on the Delhi-Chandigarh highway. Saksham was travelling with four other powerlifters who died on spot.

Another weightlifter, Rohit, 19, is battling for life. They were taken to Raja Harish Chandra Hospital in Narela here and declared dead by doctors, the police officer told IANS.

It was Derby that had the first half-chance of the second half, however, with Tom Huddlestone seeing his strike deflect just wide. Rashford's finishing let the hosts' approach play down, though, when the striker skied over the bar after being played through.

The injured athletes were admitted at a private hospital in Delhi. The impact of the accident was so brutal that the roof of the vehicle was completely blown off.

"Saksham's condition is extremely critical as he has severe head injuries".

"All the deceased and injured are from Haryana and stayed in different places in (north) Delhi's Timarpur area. We immediately rushed to the spot and found that one Maruti Swift DZire auto bearing number DL 4 CAU 9585 met with an accident near Petrol Pump, while going towards Haryana's Karnal when they were celebrating Rohit's birthday", Gupta told The Indian Express.

"The auto, according to the official, first hit a divider and then crashed into an electricity pole". The driver could not see the electricity pole. Yadav was driving the silver Swift DZire on a highway leading to Karnal, Haryana, and crashed around 4am, police said.
