Sasural Simar Ka actor Shivlekh Singh and his father Shivendra.
Child actor Shivlekh Singh was killed in a road accident on July 18 after his car got hit by a speeding truck. He and his parents were returning from Bilaspur after wrapping up a personal work and were on their way to Raipur when the tragedy struck. Shivlekh's parents Shivendra Singh and Lekhna blanked out after the accident and woke up a day later only to realise that they have lost their son.
The driver, wife and Shivendra are all out of danger now.
A shattered Shivendra Singh spoke to Spotboye.com about what happened on the day of accident. "We had come to Bilaspur for some personal work, it was not media inteaction (contrary to reports). We were driving back home and then it was all over," he said.
"The driver was hurt. My wife and I blanked out and when we woke up, we realised that our son was gone. I don't know what hit him, in fact he was not even sitting in the front. We were rushed to the hospital but..."
The world has come a standstill for Shivendra's parents who lost their only child.
"It was the truck driver's fault and I don't know if he has been arrested. Shivlekh was my only child, he said.
Shivlekh, native of
Janjgir-Champa district in Chhattisgarh, and his parents were living in Mumbai for the last ten years.
