Jaipur: A 23-year-old CA student, Vinit Jain, was killed while his four friends were injured when their car lost balance on Nahargarh hills and plunged into a 70-feet deep gorge in the early hours of Friday. The five were coming down after visiting Nahargarh Fort when the mishap occurred. The police have handed over the body of the deceased student to family members after a post-mortem examination. Two of the injured were discharged from hospital after primary treatment, while two are still admitted.

Vinit was a resident of Emali Chowk Pagaria in Jhalawar district. He was staying in a rented accommodation in Mahaveer Nagar in Tonk Road area and preparing for CA examination.

His exams were finished on Thursday and he and his friends Prateek, Pranav, Akshaya and Abhishek decided to go to Nahargarh on a picnic. They were coming down the hills. Pranav was driving. The car lost balance and fell into the gorge between Nahargarh and Jaigarh Fort. There was no mobile network, so one of them walked down and called up the police and an ambulance. It took the police nearly one hour to reach the spot and rush the injured to SMS Hospital. Vinit died while undergoing treatment.
