"Saksham's condition is extremely critical as he has severe head injuries".

The six athletes were going from Delhi to Panipat in a Swift Dezire compact sedan, carrying their powerlifting kits, when they met with the accident at 4 am near Alipur village, close to the Singhu border between Delhi and Haryana.

The impact of the accident was so high that the car's roof was completely blown off, police said. Some bottles were also found in the auto indicating the possibility of drunk driving. "We immediately rushed to the spot and found that one Maruti Swift DZire vehicle bearing number DL 4 CAU 9585 met with an accident near Petrol Pump, while going towards Haryana's Karnal when they were celebrating Rohit's birthday", Gupta told The Indian Express. The possibility of drunken driving has also not been ruled out.

The accident took place when the weightlifters were returning to Delhi.
