The victims were in a Swift DZire and were driving along the Delhi-Panipat National Highway when the accident occurred at about 4 am in the vicinity of Alipur village, which lies close to the Singhu border that divides Delhi and Haryana. A sixth weightlifter (19) was battling for life.

Doctor said that he died at 6:38 pm of a cardiac arrest. The victims were celebrating a birthday party and some alcohol bottles were found inside the vehicle, police said. Yadav with severe head injuries and internal bleeding was later shifted to the trauma centre of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, where he succumbed to his injuries. The impact of the contact was severe enough to wrench the roof of the vehicle entirely off.

Locals informed police officials that the auto was being driven at a very high speed and the driver lost control when he was trying to overtake another vehicle and rammed into a roadside pole due to which it overturned. The possibility of drunken driving has also not been ruled out.
