As per sources, the locals were in a difficult situation to take out Vikram and Sonika out of their car as somehow their car got locked due to the accident. The locals broke one of the doors to bring them out.
Eye-witnesses said that the car was moving at a huge speed. At first the car first turned towards Rashbehari. Blots of blood are in the car which explains the intensity of the accident. The police suspects that the speed of the car was at 100 km/hr. The police are also investigating whether they were intoxicated while driving.
