A Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Shri Lokendra Singh was died on 21 February, 2018 in a road accident in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh while he was on his way to attend the ‘Investors Meet’ in Lucknow. His two security guards and the driver have also died in the crash.
The Noorpur legislator from Bijnore Shri Lokendra Singh was headed for Lucknow, when his SUV rammed head on with a truck coming from the opposite direction at Kakaiyyapara. While the driver and Shri Singh, 45, were killed on the spot, the two police gunners died during treatment at a nearby medical facility.
The gunners who lost their lives have been identified as Brijesh Mishra, 28, and Deepak Kumar, 30.
Anguished by the demise of BJP MLA from Noorpur, Shri Lokendra Singh Ji due to an accident. His service towards society and role in building the BJP in UP will always be remembered. My thoughts are with his family and supporters in this hour of grief.
Deeply “pained to know about the demise of our MLA from Noorpur (U.P), Shri Lokendra Singh ji due to a road accident. Lokendra ji has served the organisation and society with passion & dedication, his passing away is a big loss to BJP. My condolences with his family & followers.”
