Three youths identified as Ashish alias Ram Lal (25), Surender (30) and Dalip Kumar (26), all residents of Dhanavali, died on the spot, the official said.

One of the four injured Hemchand (27) later succumbed to injuries.

The injured -- including vehicle owner Suresh (35), Neeraj Kumar (32) and Sunder (25) - have been admitted to a community health centre at Nankhari, he added.
