Sana Iqbal, Cross-country Woman Biker Dies in Car Accident in Hyderabad

Hyderabad : Cross-country woman biker and social activist Sana Iqbal from the Hyderabad, died in a car accident on the city outskirts on Tuesday morning.

Sana Iqbal was travelling in a car along with her husband Abdul Nadeem, heading towards home in Tolichowki. The vehicle rammed into the median strip on the Outer Ring Road, said the police.

"Sana's husband Abdul Nadeem was driving the car. Sana, who suffered severe injuries in the mishap, was shifted to a nearby hospital but was declared brought dead. Her husband, who received injuries, is undergoing treatment," said Narsingi Police Station Inspector G V Ramana Goud. 

The accident occurred around 4am at Narsingi, while the couple was travelling towards Gachibowli in west Hyderabad. Nadeem, who works as a manager with Amazon, also suffered injuries, breaking two of his ribs and is undergoing treatment at a city hospital.

The Hyderabad-based rider hit the headlines a few years ago when she undertook a solo motorcycle expedition across the country to raise awareness about suicide.

Earlier in 2016, Sana (29) took up a 38,000 kms solo-ride across the country on her Royal Enfield Bullet Electra motorcycle to create awareness on a cause she believed in and fought against. Under the banner "suicide is NOT the solution", she started her trip from Goa in November 2015 and completed her noble quest on 13 June 2016. 

The focus of her campaign was to educate people, particularly students, against committing suicide.

Police have registered a case under sections 304A (causing death by negligence) and 337(causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) of Indian Penal Code, reported New Indian Express.
