Mughal Rally : One more soul from Motorsports lost!

Mughal Rally is one of the most toughest rally-raid event, that is held at the world's highest motorable roads. It has both the elements of the most Beauty and the Beast.

In this year's the 3rd of its annual series Rally-Raid event that concluded yesterday 01st July 2012, claimed a life of one competing driver Jatinder Shukla in a night section, and his co-driver Ashish Mahajan is in critical condition and shifted to the Hospital!

The deceased driver was no new to this terrain, as he had prior experience in such terrains while he competed in Raid-de-Himalaya in the previous years. The accident occured when he reportedly went off in an hairpin bend, many hundreds of feet down the cliff while coming downhill from Sinthan Pass in Ananthnag District, in the State of Jammu & Kashmir, India. This place is among the most hostile terrain found on earth, being at an approx.12,500 ft altitude [MSL], which always pushes the adventure minded people to their limits. Unfortunately it has claimed a few souls too! More reports of the entire event will be published soon.

May his Soul Rest in Peace!
