At least two Uttar Pradesh Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) soldiers killed after a truck collided with another truck, lost control and ran over them in the Sikandrabad area of Bulandshahr early on Tuesday morning. Several PAC jawans have also been injured in the road mishap. They have been taken to the hospitals for treatment.
According to reports, the two deceased jawans were posted in 38 battalion of Aligarh and were residents of Ghaziabad.
The canter truck hit barricades that were put on the road in view of the movement of farmers towards Delhi’s borders before running over the personnel.
The PAC personnel, along with civil police, were on 'Kisan Andolan' duty when the pre-dawn road crash took place in the Sikandrabad police station area, a senior official said.
“The civil police and the PAC jawans were on duty. They were sitting at a spot along the road when a canter truck hit the barricading and ran over them. Two PAC jawans lost their lives in the incident,” he said.
The official said an FIR has been lodged in connection with the incident at the local police station and further legal proceedings being carried out.
