Cross-country woman biker ‘Sana Iqbal’ dies in car accident

Twenty-nine-year-old Sana and her husband were travelling to Tolichowki on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) near Narsingi when their car rammed the median.

Sana’s husband Abdul Nadeem, who was behind the wheel, lost control of his Fiat Punto at around 4 am, near Army Public School, close to Kali Mandir. The car rammed electric pole on the median and was badly damaged.

Sana suffered severe head injuries and was declared dead while undergoing treatment at a nearby private hospital. Nadeem sustained injuries on the ribs and is undergoing treatment.

In November 2015 from Goa, she embarked on a solo bike ride through the length and breadth of the country on a Royal Enfield. She covered 38,000 kms on bike during her solo bike mission.

A placard on the bike’s rear read: “Solo ride across India by a woman on bullet to raise awareness against suicide and depression. Suicide is not the solution”. After successfully battling depression, she wanted to encourage others to never give up in life.
