According to the police, the victims were identified as Hemant Agarawal, Diwakar Sharma, Arihant Jain, and Krishna Saini. Arihant was to celebrate his birthday on Saturday, so he and his three friends – Hemant, Diwakar, and Gulshan – aged between 20 and 22 years – hired a car. All of them were residents of Kaman area in Bharatpur. Krishna was the driver. Gulshan was seriously injured in the mishap that occurred near Saroli Mod in Tonk around 12.45 am on Saturday.

Three of the four friends were from the business community, so the local traders in Kaman kept their commercial establishments closed to mourn the deaths.

The police have handed over the bodies to family members after a postmortem examination.
