Cross-country woman biker Sana Iqbal dies in car accident in Hyderabad

Cross-country woman motorcycle rider Sana Iqbal, who undertook a solo expedition to raise awareness about suicide and depression, died in a car accident near Hyderabad early on Wednesday morning, police said.

Her husband was injured in the accident that took place on the city outskirts around 3.30 am, a police official said.

Sana (29) and her husband Abdul Nadeem were travelling in a car and heading home in Tolichowki here when it rammed the median on the Outer Ring Road, said Narsingi Police Station Inspector G V Ramana Goud.

"Sana's husband Abdul Nadeem was driving the car. Sana, who suffered severe injuries in the mishap, was shifted to a nearby hospital but was declared brought dead. Her husband, who received injuries, is undergoing treatment," Goud said.

A placard on her bike's rear read: "Solo ride across India by a woman on bullet to raise awareness against suicide and depression. Suicide is not the solution."

"She had been riding bikes since Class VII. After successfully battling depression, she wanted to encourage others to never give up in life," Sana's mother told ANI.

The Hyderabad-based rider hit the headlines a few years ago when she undertook a solo motorcycle expedition across the country to raise awareness about suicide.

The focus of her campaign was to educate people, particularly students, against committing suicide.

In November 2015, Sana embarked on a solo bike ride from Goa through the length and breadth of the country on a Royal Enfield. Sana covered 38,000 km by a bike during her solo mission.

She was pursuing a Masters in Psychology and was also counselling people with depression. Sana also delivered talks on depression at various colleges. 

A case under IPC section 304A (causing death by negligence) and other relevant sections was registered, police added.
