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.

A Delhi Police official identified the dead as Tikamchand, 27, Yogesh, 24, Harish Roy, 20, and Saurabh, 18. Among the injured is Saksham Yadav, who bagged the gold medal for India at the World Weightlifting Championships in 2017.

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

The other occupants of the automobile - Saksham and Rohit - were subsequently referred to Max Hospital's Shalimar Bagh branch in Delhi from where they were further sent to AIIMS as they continue to receive treatment. Yadav was later shifted to the trauma centre of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, where his condition was said to be "extremely critical".

He had sustained grievous head injuries and severe internal bleeding.

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

The article claimed the club would be afraid of criticism, while Roman Abramovich respects the history the defender has for them. If Chelsea were trying to win, we sure weren't reflecting that attitude on the pitch, especially in a beyond dire first half.

The auto followed through and then hit an electric pole.

After hitting the pole, the auto toppled a few times leaving its occupants severely injured.

"All the deceased and injured are from Haryana and stayed in different places in (north) Delhi's Timarpur area".

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 victims were celebrating a birthday party and some alcohol bottles were found inside the vehicle, police said. The possibility of drunken driving has also not been ruled out.

The accident took place on the Delhi-Chandigarh highway.
