Two Jet Airways employees killed in road accident

Two employees of Jet Airways heading for duty were killed when the car they were travelling in, skidded and rammed into a median at Pahadisharieff on city outskirts on Friday.

Another employee of the airlines and driver of the Mahindra Verito car sustained injuries and were admitted to different hospitals. Death was instant for Mohd. Awais (28), and Tina Moni Thapa (27), the Pahadishareef Inspector Munawar Pasha said.

The road was apparently slippery due to incessant rain the previous night and the car skidded at Ravirala gate on Srisailam highway.

The two victims and their colleague, Mohd. Faizal, all working as cabin crew, were on their way to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport when the accident occurred around 5 a.m.

The car went up the median and ploughed into an electric pole before coming to a halt. Condition of the driver was critical while Faizal was stated to be out of danger.
