The bloodied bodies of the four friends were strewn on the road.

Dr Anand Prakash, a 35-year-old professor at a private medical college in Rohtas was driving the car while one of his friends can be heard pushing him to hit a speed of 300 km per hour.

Dr Prakash asked everyone to fasten their seatbelts and assured them he would speed up once he finds a long straight stretch on the road.

The victims have been identified as Anand Prakash, a resident of Dehri, Bihar, Akhilesh Singh, who was a realtor, Deepak Kumar, an engineer — both from Aurangabad, Bihar — and a businessman named Mukesh. All of them were in their mid-30s.

The truck driver, who has been charged with causing death due to negligence, fled the spot. Police have launched a manhunt to nab him.
