Indian nationals seem to have a fascination for LLMs. In fact, in a 2012 survey conducted by a Columbia Law School graduate, it was found that 40% of participants stated that they felt their legal education seemed incomplete without a Master of Laws degree. It is therefore with extreme regret that two LLM students in their final year at Delhi University died in a vehicular accident a few days ago.
The two were identified by police as 24-year old Akshat Kamboj and 25-year old Vikhyat Pandit. They were on their final year of their LLM degree and were preparing for competitive and judiciary examinations. Preliminary investigations showed that the two are riding a scooter when they were hit by a vehicle overtaking a bus. The vehicle did not stop for them and run away. Police are checking the CCTV footage in the area to help with the inquiry into the accident and acquire the vehicle's plate number. The culprit will likely face a case of rash driving resulting to death because of negligence.
A later report indicated however, that the two were not involved in a hit-and-run but was instead over-speeding according to some locals who witnessed the incident. It was during the wee hours of the morning and the two are riding very fast. When it tried to overtake a bus, it crashed into a tractor. Police are still currently investigating.
It was learned that the two victims were with four other student companions who are bound for their dorm after having late dinner. The six students were travelling in three scooters. The two victims are in the same scooter when the accident occurred. Akshat Kamboj was dead on the spot and Vikhyat Pandit died later in the hospital.
