Three members of a family were killed in a road accident near Mela More on Zafarwal-Shakargarh Road here on Sunday.

Village Sikandapur based farmer Irshad Ahmed (70), his wife Hameeda Bibi (65) and son Basharat Ali (18) were going back to their home on a motorcycle. Meanwhile, an over loaded and speeding truck badly hit their motorcycle, killing Irshad and his wife on the spot and injuring seriously their son Basharat, who succumbed to injuries at a local hospital. Zafarwal police have registered a case against fleeing accused driver of the truck. They were laid to rest in their native graveyard as a large number of the people from all walks of life attended their funerals. Several agonic and mourning scenes were witnessed when the three funerals were lifted from a house for burial.
