Bhatti was sitting in the rear seat of the car and received serious head injuries. The accident took place near the truck union on the outskirts of Shahkot. "It is a blind turn. Either Jasraj had a nap or could not notice the turn and the car hit the tree," said Shahkot DSP M S Bhullar.

"Bhatti and the three injured were rushed to Orthonova Hospital in Jalandhar immediately in an ambulance and Bhatti died on the way," Bhullar said. "Had it not been quick shifting, Navneet's life would also have been danger as he was also sinking," he added.

After finishing the promotion work in Batinda they were coming to Jalandhar where they were scheduled to interact with the media in Jalandhar at 12.30pm in the afternoon on Thursday. The media in Jalandhar had already been sent messages in typical Bhatti style as it read "Pirated music launch scoop by Jaspal Bhatti of his new movie Power Cut....".
