Yadav and the other injured weight-lifter were rushed to the Max Hospital in New Delhi's Shalimar Bagh for treatment.

Police officials suspect that despite the foggy conditions, the driver had been speeding and couldn't notice and avoid the divider. Yadav was later shifted to the AIIMS trauma centre in an "extremely critical" condition. The athlete had sustained grievous head injuries and severe internal bleeding.

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.

A Delhi Police official identified the dead as Tikamchand, 27, Yogesh, 24, Harish Roy, 20, and Saurabh, 18. Some liquor bottles were found in the vehicle. "They were celebrating Rohit's birthday on Saturday and had gone to Karnal (in Haryana)", the officer said. Due to the impact of the crash, the car's roof was blown away.
