A Border Security Force (BSF) Head Constable posted at 143-Unit located in Badarkha village under Parwalia police station and his 8-month-old son died, while his wife and brother-in-law escaped with injuries after the car they were travelling rammed into a tree after being hit by truck on NH-12 in Parwalia village near Shahpur Jod. The intensity of mishap could be gauged from the fact that the Head Constable and his son died on the spot, while his wife and brother-in-law sustained head injuries and were undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Lalghati area, where their condition was reported out of danger.


Investigation officer Sub-Inspector P C Yadav said that the deceased was identified as Dharmendra Kajla, 25, son of Dodaram Jat, resident of Sati ki Dhani, Khejdi in Jhunjhunu district of Rajasthan and his 8-month old son Arush. He lived in a rented accommodation in Parwalia village and was posted as Head Constable (Radio) with Border Security Force for the past five years in Odisha and on November 1, 2016, he joined with BSF Bhopal.


His wife Anita, 23, and brother-in-law Anil sustained severe injuries in the incident and were undergoing treatment at Tripti Hospital in Lalghati.


The incident took place in the morning around 8.30 pm, while Dharmendra was going to drop Anita and Anil to Bhopal railway station by his Maruti Swift Dzire car bearing registration number RJ-18-CB-4624. Few days ago, Anil had come to take his sister Anita to her parents’ home in Rajasthan for the upcoming Makar Sankranti festival. Sources said that as they left late for the station, he was speeding his car. When they reached near Manohar Patidar’s agriculture farm on NH-12, a speeding truck coming from the opposite side hit their car on its side and the driver fled from the spot towards Shyampur along with the vehicle. Dharmendra lost control over car and took a sudden turn and hit a tree beside the road. The collision was so intense towards driver side that Dharmendra and Arush died on the spot, while Anita and Anil sustained severe head injuries. The locals tried to chase the truck, but the errant driver fled from the spot along with it. The injured were rushed to Tripti Hospital by ambulance.
