Raid de Himalaya called off after Subhamoy Paul's fatal incident

The 2016 edition of Raid de Himalaya has been called off after seasoned rider Subhamoy Paul suffered a fatal accident on Tuesday.

Paul was crossing the flat-out Kaza stage when he lost control of his KTM 500 EXC, falling off the bike. The helmet reportedly came off and mashed, with Paul dying on the spot.

It is believed that the angle of the accident was responsible for the fatal consequences.

When the first response vehicle arrived, Paul was found with a severe head injury. However, the medical team failed to revive his pulse and Paul was airlifted to Manali.

Following the incident, the rally has been cancelled, with participants and officials returning to Manali.

The organisers, however, have decided to continue the TSD rally, which runs on a different route and is designed for amateur drivers.

Raid de Himalaya is widely regarded as the toughest Indian cross-country rally, attracting 100s of participants every year.
