Sonipat (Haryana) [India], February 16 (ANI): The post-mortem of actor Deep Sidhu's body was concluded on Wednesday, after which the corpse was handed over to his family.
Meanwhile, Sonipat Police has filed an FIR under sections 279 (rash driving) and 304 (causing death by negligence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against a truck driver for allegedly causing the accident that resulted in the death of the Punjabi actor.
The complaint was filed by Sidhu's brother, who alleged that the driver applied the brakes suddenly, causing the accident which resulted in Sidhu's death.
Police had earlier said that Deep Sidhu's car crashed into a stationary truck near Pipli toll at the KMP expressway.
