BHOPAL: Three aged childhood friends were crushed to death by a speeding SUV while walking through a blind turn during their morning walk on the the Indore-Betul highway at Chicholi, in Madhya Pradesh’s Betul district.

The deceased have been identified as Kamal Patel, Ravindrao Jain and Narendra Katare, all residents of Chicholi, Betul, for whom the morning walk had been a joint exercise for years.

According to Chicholi police station in-charge PK Kumre, at around 6:30 am, the three men were walking through a blind turn on the Indore-Betul National Highway (NH 59 A) when a speeding SUV crushed them to death.

Local residents spotted the three bleeding profusely and dialed the emergency number for State police-100. The emergency vehicle rushed the three to Chicholi hospital, where they were declared brought dead.

During spot investigation, police found a CCTV camera that shows the SUV, with a Gujarat registration, running over the three friends.

“We’ve lodged a case of causing death by negligence against the car owner and driver under Section 304A of IPC and investigations are underway,” said PK Kumre.
