As per reports, a man and his son died in a road accident in the morning. Immediately after their death, the man’s brother died of cardiac arrest.

The deceased have been identified as Kande Munda, his son Laxman Munda and his brother Samara Munda.

Sources said Kande and his son Laxman were on their way to the weekly haat at Bankapatuli when an iron rod-laden truck hit their scooter near Pipilia Square. Both the father and son died on the spot.

The news of their death reached their village following which Kande’s brother Samara was struck with grief and he reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest. He passed away subsequently.
