Gaurav Gill and his navigator were booked on Sunday on charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder after their car rammed into a motorcycle during the National Rally Championship race here, killing a couple and their son, police said.
“The FIR was registered with Samdari police station at 2 am on Sunday under section 304 of IPC against G Gill and M Sherif,” said Additional Superintendent of Police Khinv Singh.

“The complaint was given by the son of the deceased. The names were written on the vehicle that hit a motorcycle, killing three on the spot on Saturday,” added Singh. The victims were identified as Narendra Kumar, his wife Pushpa Devi and their son Jitendra.
The couple’s elder son, Rahul, claimed that his parents were standing along the road with the motorcycle, talking to his younger brother, when Gill’s car hit them and two other cars coming from behind also crushed them.
