Khandwa/ Kasrawad (Madhya Pradesh): A pall of gloom descended in Dogawan, Kankaria and Kasrawad villages of Khargone district when the bodies of five friends who were killed in a road accident in Khandwa district arrived here on Friday morning.

Heart-rending scenes were witnessed when the last journey of accident victims headed for cremation ground on the outskirt of the village. The mortal remains were carried together to the crematorium ground. As the pyres were lit, the grief-stricken family members of the victims could not control their emotions and were seen wailing inconsolably for their near-and-dear ones.

During the preliminary investigation, it was revealed that Alkesh, whose in-laws belong to Punasa village, came to his brother-in-law Mahesh Yadav’s place along with four of his friends.

Alkesh and all his friends left for their home at around 10 pm on Thursday, and after covering barely five kilometres of distance, their car met a fatal collision with a trailer truck. Before police and emergency services could reach the spot, all five people died.
