As soon as Ajinder's body was being taken out of the morgue, Mahathroo, went to the other side to avoid the sight.
"I got a call from my daughter in the evening at about 7.30 pm and she said that Ajinder has not returned from work and his phone is off. Then I called one of his friends to inquire. He went through the route which he took for his office and came to know about the accident. He called me back and just asked me the registration number of his bike and as I told him, he disconnected the call. I realized that something was wrong," said Bal Singh Kalsi, Ajinder's father-in-law.
Ajinder Singh Mahathroo got married three years ago and was working as a software engineer in Wipro. He and his engineer wife Paramjit were pursuing an M Tech course. "He had come home on Christmas and left the car for me to use during winters. I used to ask him to use the car instead of the motorcycle, but he used to say that he liked to go on his bike," said the father of the deceased. Ajinder's body was handed over to the family Saturday afternoon and was cremated in Ajinder's native town in Sangrur later Saturday evening.
ASI Sumer Singh said, "We recovered the mobile phone of the deceased and gave a call to his father in Sangrur. We just informed them about the accident and not Ajinder's condition". Meanwhile, Gurmeet and Gagandeep, Ajinder's neighbors said, "His wife came to us saying that it had been three hours and Ajinder had not returned from work. She got worried. So we came looking for him and found that he had met with the accident. We went to GMCH-32 first and then came to GMSH-16. We had come to know that he had died. Later, his father was informed when he was on his way from Sangrur".
The driver of the truck, Jaspal Singh was released on bail Saturday evening. His medical examination revealed that he was not drunk at the time of the incident. He was booked on charges of causing death due to negligence. The police was in the process of getting the technical examination of the truck by this evening. "We have to check if the breaks were actually working or not. The keys of the truck were misplaced and we are getting the keys made," said Inspector Narinder Patial.
However, one of the two cyclists who were taken to the GMSH after the accident, is critical and was referred to PGI. The doctors have detected a clot in the brain.
Another accident victim is admitted to GMSH with fractures in both his legs.
