The deceased individuals have been identified as 30-year-old Sudhir Pandit, 28-year-old Randhir Pandit and 25-year-old Sanjay Pandit — all from Madhubani district of Bihar.
According to the police, the brothers used to run utensils and mobile shops in Hayatpur village, and were returning to their home in Tajnagar village when the accident took place on Thursday night.

Later, a police team reached the spot and checked all the CCTV cameras installed nearby. However, the vehicle involved in the incident could not be identified.
