Ace Model turned actress Sonika Chauhan passed away in a horrible road accident today morning when the car she was traveling in with a friend, actor Vikram Chatterjee, hit the divider and climbed the pavement on Rashbehahi Avenue.
Bystanders who heard the crashing noise rushed to the spot and brought the couple out of the car, which had been completely wrecked in the accident. Sonika and Vikram were rushed to a nearby hospital around 5 am. Vikram, who reportedly sustained head injuries, was discharged from the hospital.
Sonika had been a part of many memorable ad shoots and had recently made a name for herself as emcee and sports anchor. Apart from Kolkata, she was also working out of Mumbai on various assignments.
