Ramswaroop Bairwa, sub-inspector at the Mandawar police station, said, "A car from the cavalcade hit the motorcycle, killing six-year-old Sachin while his grandfather was severely injured. An FIR has been registered against the driver of the car and further investigations are underway."
Bhagwat, who turned 69 on Wednesday, had gone to seek the blessings of 123-year-old saint Baba Kamalnath in Tijara in Alwar district. The tragic accident occured when his cavalcade, comprising eight to 10 cars, was returning from Tijara.
Meanwhile, an RSS worker said that the bike was driven at a high speed and had luggage on the back. It lost its balance and slipped on the road before being hit by the car, he claimed.
