16-yr-old boy killed by jeep in DIG’s cavalcade

A 16-year-old boy was killed when the motorcycle he was riding hit an escort vehicle of the Allahabad DIG's cavalcade in George Town area of the city on Thursday. Police said prima facie it appeared that the boy had lost control of his motorcycle and got hit by the gypsy.

Senior SP (Allahabad), Mohit Agrawal said, "The escort vehicle collided with the motorcycle as the latter suddenly veered towards the wrong carriageway. The George Town police is handling the matter." DIG (Allahabad Range) N Ravindra could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.

The police said that Akash Singh, son of Vijay Bahadur Singh, a resident of Lukerganj, was going from Balson Chauraha towards Civil Lines when the incident took place on G T Road around 4 pm.

"The boy first hit a cyclist, following which he lost control of his motorcycle and came right in front of the escort gypsy. Before the gypsy's driver could take evasive action, the boy was hit. He died on the spot," said a police officer.

Preliminary inquiries revealed that Akash was a student of Class 9 in Bishop Johnson School.
