Top woman biker killed in accident

India’s top woman biker, Veenu Paliwal, died in an accident in Vidisha district of Madhya Pradesh on Monday. The Jaipur resident was on a nationwide tour on her Harley Davidson bike along with fellow biker Dipesh Tanwar, who was on his motorcycle.

The 44-year-old biker skidded on a road about 100 km from Bhopal. She was rushed to a primary health centre, from where she was shifted to the Vidisha district hospital. However, she succumbed to injuries before admission.

Known as ‘Lady of Harley’ and ‘HOG Rani,’ Veenu’s numerous admirers mourned her untimely death on social media on Tuesday. “A sad day for the biking community,” tweeted Wheel Street, an online platform for bike lovers.

“RIP mam :( you are a great loss to the community,” tweeted another admirer.

The mother of two had left Lucknow on Monday morning and was headed for Bhopal. Veenu, who was wearing protective gear, also emphasised on safety. She was also planning to make a documentary on her motorbike journeys. She also wanted to join politics and spread awareness about riding bikes safely.
