LLMs are extremely popular with Indian nationals. 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 were riding a scooter when they were hit by a vehicle overtaking a bus. The vehicle did not stop for following the accident. Police are checking CCTV footage in the area to help with the inquiry. The culprit will likely face prosecution for reckless driving resulting to death due to negligence.
A later report indicated however, that the two were not involved in a hit-and-run but were instead speeding. This is according to some locals who witnessed the incident. The incident took place during the early hours of the morning. The two are riding very fast. When they tried to overtake a bus, they crashed their scooter into a tractor. Police are still investigating.
