It’s always tragic when someone loses their life in a road accident. Agastya Chauhan’s death is a sad reminder of the dangers of high-speed racing on public roads. Agastya was a famous YouTuber who had 1.2 million subscribers on YouTube.
It’s essential to remember speed limits are in place for a reason, and exceeding them can have severe consequences for the rider and other road users. It’s a good idea for all motorcyclists to prioritize safety and follow traffic laws at all times to prevent accidents and fatalities.

When the accident occurred, Chauhan was riding a Kawasaki Ninja bike with four friends and trying to reach 300 kmph. However, he collided with the divider. The accident happened on the Yamuna Expressway at the 47-kilometre milestone.
Unfortunately, Chauhan sustained severe head injuries and passed away on the spot. Reports suggest that his helmet shattered upon impact with the divider, which may have contributed to the severity of his injuries.
Police have handed his body to the family. Additionally, no police complaint has been made by the family.
The police had taken strict action against such dangerous stunts and warned that anyone caught performing such acts would face legal consequences. This move is part of the government’s efforts to ensure road safety and prevent accidents caused by reckless driving.
Police had already booked Agastya under multiple sections of the Indian Penal Code for performing dangerous stunts.

Safety with gear
Everyone who rides a motorcycle must prioritize safety by wearing appropriate protective gear, such as helmets, gloves, and body armour.
It is essential to follow traffic rules and exercise caution while riding to prevent accidents and minimize the risk of injury.
My deepest condolences go out to Chauhan’s family and friends during this difficult time.
