Subhan was reportedly wearing a helmet, but didn’t have any sort of riding gear on him. Unfortunately, the helmet didn’t suffice, as he was flung off the bike and incurred grievous injuries to his body and head.


His head injury led to heavy blood loss and proved to be fatal. As for Sultan, he was not even wearing a helmet. Both was rushed to Bhabha Hospital, where Subhan was declared dead and Sultan in a critical condition.

The accident occurred when they crossed the reclamation bridge junction, after which the INR 15 lakh Ducati apparently skidded and crashed into the divider. Eyewitnesses say that it was act of over speeding, but its still not clear what caused the fatal crash.

    Money can’t buy everything. if yes can they bring back dead person alive? So funny those parents learnt in a hard way.

    Very Sad. The poor kid’s father quite obviously, is ignorant about motorcycles. No biker in his right mind will gift his 18 year old son a 162 hp monstrosity as his first bike just because he could afford it or because the overenthusiastic kid insisted for it. Irresponsible parenting at its worst and a perfect example of trying to get over a guilty conscience by throwing money at kids to compensate for lack of involvement in their upbringing. May sound harsh towards the bereaved parents but it’s the only explanation for this untimely death. God bless the departed soul.
