In a tragic incident, an ONGC employee lost his life after driving his vehicle into the Jagduar River at Teok, in Jorhat district late on Wednesday night.
Police identified the deceased as Bhaskar Jyoti Barman, a resident of Guwahati’s Bamunimaidam. He was an employee of ONGC.
As per initial reports, the incident took place reportedly due to lack of warning signs with expansion works underway for the Four-Lane Project.

The local people were able to recover the body from inside the car.
