The men who were run over have been identified as Sultan Singh (50), whose daughter was to get engaged Monday, and Raghu Verma Raja, in his 40s, who had come to the city from Bangalore to attend the ceremony.
The two were rushed to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Trauma Centre where they were pronounced ead.
