A doctor at Kailash hospital said, "Six injured persons left for Delhi hospitals on their own against medical advice (LAMA). 16 are still admitted at hospital."

"Bhim Singh, Pohop Singh and Pawan Singh were admitted to ICU as their condition was critical," the doctor said.

Several injured have suffered multiple fractures, he said, adding, around 12 persons were discharged after dressing of minor wounds.

The police officer said, "Though I was appealing the drivers to drive slow due to fog, but still drivers continued driving fast."
