HP Gas truck claims life of young man in Ambazari

Nagpur: In a heart-rending incident, life of 24-year old boy was sniffed out as a truck, laden with HP LPG cylinders, dashed against his motorcycle on Ambazari bypass road on Thursday morning.

Identified as Ankush Shankarrao Paunikar, the deceased was resident of Wathoda. Around 8.30 am on Thursday, Ankush was going towards Ambazari on his bike (MH/49/W/7310).

As he reached Ambazari bypass, a rashly driven truck (MH/36/F/1618), laden with HP LPG cylinders, dashed against his bike from behind with forceful impact. As a result, Ankush fell on the road and received fatal injuries on his head. He died on the spot, before any medical help could be extended to him.

Ambazari PSI S T Ambure booked accused driver Dilip Natthuji Warkhade (55), resident of Sawargoan Road, Taluka Katol under Sections 279, 304(A) and arrested him. Further probe is underway.
