An associate professor of PAU died after his car fell into Sidhwan canal along southern bypass on Sunday evening.

The incident happened about 5 pm when Davinder Singh, 44, was going towards Rajgarh Estates along the Sidhwan canal road to see his under-construction house. However, his car spun out of control and it fell straight into the canal.

Incidentally, an ASI, Gyan Singh, was passing by when the car fell into the canal. He quickly jumped inside the canal but by the time he took out Davinder, he was already dead.

Singh is survived by his wife and two children.
