Punjabi singer Nirvair Singh, who was known for his number 'Tere Bina' from the album 'My Turn,' was killed in a car crash in the Australian city of Melbourne, media reported on Thursday.
According to media reports, Nirvair Singh was driving in his lane when a speeding car lost its control and rammed into another vehicle, which flipped into the Punjabi singer's lane. The collision was so intense that the Punjabi singer died on the spot, the reports said.
Melbourne police said Indian singer Nirvair, who had moved to Australia 9 years ago, was in the wrong place at the wrong time, according to dailymail.co.uk.
It was alleged that a car was seen being driven erratically in the area before hitting two vehicles in an area known as Diggers Rest. A man and woman were arrested at the scene and remain under police guard in hospital.

Fellow Punjabi singer Gagan Sandhu Kokri, who also worked on the album 'My Turn,’ reacted to Nirvair's death with these heartfelt words: "Your song was the best song in our album 'My Turn,’ from which we all started our careers. You were a very good person and your departure was a shock for everyone in Melbourne. RIP bro."
