Ahmedabad: The desire for instant fame has led to a tragic incident claiming the lives of two young men in Gujarat. The incident occurred as five young men, aged between 22 and 27, were travelling from Ahmedabad to Mumbai in a Maruti Suzuki Brezza. They decided to document their journey by live-streaming on Instagram, a decision that would have devastating consequences.
In the live video, which began with cheerful greetings and music playing in the background, the occupants of the car appeared to be enjoying themselves. However, the mood quickly changed as the camera focused on the SUV's instrument cluster, displaying a speed of 160 kilometres per hour. The driver, encouraged by his friends, began overtaking vehicles recklessly, weaving through traffic at speeds exceeding 100 kmph, as per a TOI report.
Tragedy struck when the driver swerved to avoid an obstacle, resulting in a collision with a tree near Adas in Gujarat, approximately 100 km from Ahmedabad, on National Highway 48. Two occupants of the car, identified as Aman Mehboobbhai Sheikh and Chiragkumar K Patel from Ahmedabad, lost their lives in the accident. The other five occupants, also from Ahmedabad, sustained injuries and are currently receiving treatment.
Police officials have filed a case against the driver, identified as Mustafa alias Shahbad Khan Pathan, for his reckless driving leading to the fatal accident. The incident serves as a grim reminder of the dangers of irresponsible behaviour on the road, emphasising the importance of adhering to traffic rules and exercising caution while driving.
