Accident The accident occurred at 1am in the morning.

Mumbai: Barely a week after a tragic accident claimed the lives of five power lifters in Delhi, five wrestlers and a driver were killed in a major road accident in Sangli district of Maharahstra early on Saturday, police said.

The accident took place around 1 am when an SUV carrying the grapplers rammed headlong into an oncoming tractor carrying sugarcane.

Five others, including wrestlers, were injured in the accident and they were admitted to hospitals.

The wrestlers belonged to the institute, Kranti Kushti Sankul. "It is very sad and shocking, for us," said Sharad Lad, the institution's secretary.

They were all returning after a wrestling contest in Satara. More details were awaited.
