A nerve wrecking accident in which a city based family lost three members of their family including a Punjab and Haryana High Court Lawyer, Sudershan Punchhi along with his wife, Seema and their four year old son has left everyone in shock. The accident dates back to January 11 which took place due to the bursting of the car tyre near Jagraon (Ludhiana), leaving three of the four members. However, Sudershan’s four months daughter, Dhwani escaped without even having a single injury mark.
Aditi Sheoran, Joint Secretary, District bar Association Chandigarh asserted that the Lohri celebrations scheduled to be held on the district court premises have been cancelled. Large number of Advocates were seen paying homage to the departed souls on the day of cremation on January 13. Sudershan is survived by his ailing father, who is a cancer patient, his mother and his four year old daughter who is oblivious and too young to know what had happened.
Aakash Mohan Singh, Advocate at Punjab and Haryana High Court expressing grief over the death of Advocate Sudershan asserted that he was a man with resilient character and was also lauded by all the lawyer fraternity in the Court.
