Rishabh Pant: NHAI official revealed- there was no pothole on the road where Rishabh Pant’s car met with an accident

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) official on Monday said that the road where cricketer Rishabh Pant’s car met with a near-fatal accident did not have any potholes.

Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, after meeting the cricketer at a hospital in Dehradun on Sunday, had said that Pant told him that his car met with an accident when he was trying to avoid a pothole on the highway.

However, Pradeep Singh Gusain, project director of NHAI Roorkee division, told PTI, “There was no pothole on the road where the accident took place. The road where the car met with the accident was blocked due to a canal (Rajwaha) adjacent to the highway.” It is a bit narrow. This canal is used for irrigation.”

Gusain also denied that the accident site has been repaired by NHAI and the “potholes” have been fixed. However, some photographs of laborers purportedly repairing a portion of the highway went viral on late Sunday evening.

Dhami had told reporters after meeting Pant at Max Hospital that the cricketer had lost control of the vehicle while trying to avoid a pothole or some black object.

After meeting the cricketer in the hospital, Dhami told reporters, “He (Pant) said that while trying to avoid a pothole or some black object, the car overturned on the road.”

Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) director Shyam Sharma, who met Pant on Saturday, also quoted the keeper-batsman as saying that the accident happened in the early hours of Friday when he was trying to tackle a pothole.

The major accident took place around 5.30 am on Friday when Pant’s luxury car crashed into a road divider near Roorkee in Haridwar district and burst into flames, causing multiple injuries to the cricketer. He miraculously survived this very serious road accident.
