Head-on collision leaves four injured at Dharmanagar


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, December 27: In a tragic incident on Tuesday evening at approximately 7:30 p.m., a head-on collision between two bikes has left four individuals injured, raising concerns over the escalating accident rate in the region attributed to the prevailing cold weather and fog.

The incident took place when a bike with registration number TR05E 8976, traveling from Dharmanagar to Kadamtala, collided with another bike bearing registration number TR05D-4719 heading in the opposite direction from Kadamtala towards Dharmanagar. The occupants of the first bike, identified as Joy Deb (37) and Rahul Deb (17), hailing from Ward No. 6 of Ichailal Gram Panchayat and belonging to the same family, were seriously affected by the collision.

Eyewitnesses reported that the collision occurred near the Ichhai Lal Rhyma Mahadev house, where an Ashtaprahar Kirtan event was underway. Prior to the collision, Joy Deb and Rahul Deb were involved in an incident where they allegedly pushed a 13-year-old girl, Mayurika Dhar, in front of the Mahadev house.

Mayurika was promptly rescued by the fire brigade personnel after receiving information from the kirtan attendees. She was initially taken to the Kadamtala Primary Health Center and later referred to North District Hospital in Dharmanagar for advanced medical treatment.

Meanwhile, the occupants of the second bike, driven by Manor Ali (26 years old, father’s name Bashir Ali) from North Hurua Gram Panchayat, also sustained injuries in the face-to-face collision. Rahul Deb and Manor Ali suffered minor injuries, while Joy Deb’s injuries were reported to be severe. Joy Deb has been airlifted abroad for further medical treatment.

The incident has cast a shadow of panic over the local community, as it follows the earlier incident of a minor being hit by a bike on the same night. The increasing accident rate in the region, coupled with adverse weather conditions, has prompted concerns about road safety, and firefighters remain actively engaged in transporting injured individuals to hospitals. Authorities are urging residents to exercise caution and adhere to traffic regulations in these challenging conditions.
