A Mercedes Benz car collided head-on with a Maruti Wagon-R, leaving a Ludhiana resident killed and his young wife seriously injured on the Chandigarh-Ludhiana National Highway-95 near Mamoopur village, Kharar. The white luxury car driver Baldev Singh Jhajj, a leading transporter of Phase X, Mohali, was arrested and later released on bail, informed Additional Station House Officer Harbhajan Singh.

While Mandeep Singh, 27, of Housing Board Colony in BRS Nagar, Ludhiana, died on the spot, his wife Amanjot Kaur, 25, was struggling for life and was shifted from Kharar Civil Hospital to Ludhiana, Investigating Officer (IO) Bhupinder Singh disclosed.

The couple were married eight months ago. While Mandeep worked with a private firm in Ludhiana, Amanjot was a housewife.

The accident took place at around 6.30 am when the speeding Mercedes driver, who along with his wife was heading towards Ludhiana, in a bid to overtake another vehicle moving ahead of it, failed to see the Wagon-R coming from the opposite direction at a blind curve and rammed into it, the IO revealed.
