New Delhi:Three men from Tamil Nadu riding a bike were killed in a mishap after their two-wheeler rammed into a road divider near Dhaula Kuan flyover in the wee hours today.
The deceased were identified as — Suresh (26), M Senthil (25) and B Swami (35).
All three were residents of JJ cluster in Moti Bagh and returning after watching a movie in Naraina when the incident took place near south-west Delhi’s Subroto Park area.

According to the police, all of them suffered critical injuries which lead to their death. However, the police are also probing if any other vehicle was responsible for the accident.
“The bike was damaged from the front only, which suggests collision and the impact points towards over-speeding. Family members of the victims have been informed and the bodies were sent for autopsy,” a senior police officer said.
Police said that they got a call from nearby residents at 2.50 am about the accident and all three were rushed to AIIMS trauma centre where they were declared brought dead.

All the three vicitms belonged to Salem in Tamil Nadu and had been living here with their families.
