The lethal accident occurred at Sindhu border in Delhi.

Four national-level power-lifters have died after being involved in a road accident near the Delhi-Haryana border, while two others were seriously injured. The victims were on the Delhi-Panipat highway in a Swift Dzire auto which police believe was being driven at high speed in a drastically reduced visibility due to fog.

Another weightlifter, Rohit, 19, is battling for life.

Yadav had suffered multiple head injuries and had first been taken to the Max Super Speciality Hospital before being shifted to AIIMS at 9.30am. While Rohit, one of the victims who suffered grievous injuries was taken to LNJP Hospital where his condition is stated to be out of danger.

The cleaning process, however, forced each of the flight's passengers to spend the night in Alaska. The man is also said to have pulled off his shirt and attempted to flush it mid-flight.

Doctor said that he died at 6:38 pm of a cardiac arrest.

Such was the impact of the crash that the vehicle - a Maruti Swift Dzire with registration number DL4CAU 9585 - rolled over several times before coming to a stop. All of them were residents of north Delhi's Timarpur. Some liquor bottles have been found in the vehicle hinting towards a possibility of drunken driving.

The cops rushed to the spot and found that one Maruti Swift met with an accident near a petrol pump while going towards Haryana's Karnal when they were celebrating Rohit's birthday.

The auto, according to the official, first hit a divider and then crashed into an electric pole. The possibility of drunken driving has also not been ruled out. The accident took place when the weightlifters were returning to Delhi.
