14-year-old child actor Shivlekh Singh, who acted in popular television shows like Sankamochan Hanuman and Sasural Simar Ka, died in a road accident on Thursday in Raipur.
Shivlekh was travelling with his parents in a car, which collided with a truck from rear side on outskirts of Raipur. While his parents were injured in the accident, Shivlekh fell out of the car and died on the spot.
As per the police, the accident took place at 3 pm at Dharsiva region when Shivlekh and his family were coming from Bilaspur to Raipur. The truck driver, who is at large, apparently applied the brakes on the highway without slowing down the pace of the truck, which caused the accident between the two vehicles.
Shivlekh, who was a resident of Janjgir-Champa district in Chhattisgarh, had been living in Mumbai with his family for past several years.
