Speaking on this, a senior police official told the news agency, “Prima facie it seems that Shibaji Roy, a man in his early 30s, was driving the car. His friend Ashna Surana (21) was seated next to him. While Roy was declared dead on his arrival at a private hospital in Kolkata, Surana was admitted with serious injuries.”
The two passengers were removed from the mangled remains of the smashed car by the locals, along with the police officers, the agency reported.
