Two Kolkata telecom techies killed in road mishap near Birik Dara
Two telecom techies from Kolkata were killed in a road mishap near Birik Dara under Kalimpong sub-division along NH-31 A last night. The deceased have been identified as Partha Chaterjee (30) from Hoogli and Rajesh Singh (34) from Purlia in Kolkata. Both were employees of a mobile company and were travelling from Sikkim to Siliguri. The Tata Sumo car on which the duo were travelling fell almost 200 feet down a cliff, killing them both on the spot. The driver of the vehicle, Dilip Gupta, from Lava in Kalmipong sustained major injuries and has been admitted to Kalimpong Sub-divisional hospital.
The two techies were inspecting their company’s telecom towers and were travelling from Darjeeling to Jorethang in Silkkim and were on their way to Siliguri via Melli, according to Dilip. He said a truck coming from the other side failed to use the dipper, due to which he could not see the curve ahead and the car plunged straight down the hill.  The bodies of the deceased will be handed over to company officials after the postmortem, police sources informed.(EOIC)
