Famous Indian Woman Cross country woman bike rider Sana Iqbal, who had taken up the fight against suicide and depression by spreading awareness through her bike rides, died in a car accident on Tuesday in Hyderabad. Sana suffered severe head injuries and was declared dead while undergoing treatment at a nearby private hospital.
A placard on her 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.”
A case was registered under IPC section 304A (causing death by negligence) and other relevant sections, police added. Her husband was injured in the accident that took place on the city outskirts around 3.30 am, a police official said.
Sana (29) and her husband Abdul Nadeem were travelling in a car and heading home in Tolichowki when it rammed the median on the Outer Ring Road, said Narsingi Police Station Inspector G V Ramana Goud.
“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,” Goud said.
In November 2015, Sana embarked on a solo ride across India on her Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle. In a ride that covered over 38,000 kms across India, Sana was on an ‘anti-suicide’ mission, after she battled depression herself. The focus of her campaign was to educate people, particularly students, on the effects of depression and means to prevent suicide.
