Nagpur: The thrill of speeding cost two siblings their lives and left two others seriously injured in Nagpur. One of the occupants of the car was on Facebook Live throughout the journey, causing the incident to be streamed live on social media.

The deceased have been identified as Punkesh Patil, 28, and Sanket Patil, 23, both residents of Kailash Nagar. The injured are being treated at hospitals in Katol and Nagpur. The brothers, accompanied by seven other friends, were headed to Katol for business.

As they were nearing Hatla Shivara, in the process of trying to overtake other vehicles on the road, they lost control of their car and it overturned several times until it crashed into a tree.

When the incident first went live, their FB friends suggested they have a good time, only to be left horrified as a tragedy began to unfold.
