Punjabi actor Deep Sidhu died in a road accident on Tuesday. He was out on bail in the Republic Day violence case in January, 2021.
His friend Reena Rai was also present in the same car with him but she survived the road accident. As per police, Reena was on the left side of the car which was not heavily damaged. Also, the airbag on Reena’s side opened immediately that saved her life eventually.
The accident happened on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway bypassing Delhi. Visuals from the road accident site show a white Mahindra Scorpio smashed on the rear of a trailer truck.
Deep Sidhu was travelling from Delhi to Bhatinda in Punjab when the SUV in which he was travelling rammed a trailer truck at 9:30 pm on Tuesday, said the police.
As per the Hospital authorities, he was brought dead. Mr Sidhu was arrested by the Delhi Police last year in connection with a tractor rally by farmers on Republic Day.
It had spiralled into violence after the protesting farmers barged into the Red Fort and attacked policemen. The farmers were protesting against three new farm laws.
But he got out on bail in April, then he was arrested again just after his release. Deep Sidhu was accused of being a key conspirator of the Red Fort violence.
