New Delhi, Mar 5 (PTI) A 26-year-old disc jockey was killed and his friend injured after they were allegedly hit by a truck while changing their car’s tyre in north-west Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar, the police said today.
Rahul Raj and his two friends — all of them working as DJs in weddings — were driving towards Jahangirpuri from Azadpur last night when a tyre of their car got punctured. Raj and one of his friends got down to replace the tyre, while the other sat inside the car, a police official said.
While Raj was repairing the tyre and his friend was standing next to him, a speeding truck hit the duo, crushing Raj under the wheels and badly injuring the other, the official said, adding that the third person, who was inside the car, received a jolt during the accident.
Raj was declared brought dead at a hospital, while his friend’s condition is said to be critical. The truck driver fled the spot with the vehicle, he said.
