SUV in convoy of ex-wrestling body boss Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh's son hits two-wheeler in Uttar Pradesh, 2 die

| @indiablooms | 29 May 2024, 02:56 pm

A Toyota Fortuner SUV belonging to the convoy of former wrestling boss Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh's son hit a bike in Uttar Pradesh's Gonda region on Wednesday which left at least two people, including a 17-year-old, dead.

Karan Bhushan Singh is a BJP candidate from Kaiserganj Lok Sabha seat.

His father Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh made headlines in recent times after several top wrestlers of the country accused him of sexually harassing women wrestlers.

A Delhi court recently framed charges against him in connection to the case.

The ruling party also dropped him from the candidate list for the ongoing Indian general polls.

Visuals from the accident site show the SUV with "police escort" written on the rear windscreen, suggesting it is part of a VIP convoy. The car's number is UP32HW1800 and it is said to be registered in the name of Nandini Nagar educational institute run by Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh's family, reported NDTV.

The FIR showed that the complainant Chanda Begum said that around 9am his sons Rehan (17) and Shehzad (24) were out on their motorcycle to bike medicine when the SUV hit the two-wheeler.

Both died on the spot of the mishap.

A woman named Sita was reportedly hurt in the incident.

It is still not clear whether  Karan Bhushan Singh was present in the convoy when the accident occurred.

Police have arrested the driver and seized the SUV.
