Such was the impact of the crash that the vehicle - a Maruti Swift Dzire with registration number DL4CAU 9585 - rolled over several times before coming to a stop.

The vehicle, the athletes were travelling in, first hit a road divider before crashing into an electric police, police said.

"They were celebrating Rohit's birthday on Saturday and had gone to Karnal (in Haryana)", the officer said. The accident took place when the weightlifters were returning to Delhi.
