An eighteen month old child was crushed to death in Gurgaon when a speeding car ran over him while he was playing near a tea stall in Sector-55 on Sunday afternoon. The car driver managed too flee, but police have lodged an FIR against him. The boy's father, Hargobind Singh, owns a tea stall near Ansal Institute of Technology in Sector-55.
Gurgaon Police told The
Times of India
that on Sunday afternoon, Hargobind's son Shivaji, who
was playing in the front stall, unknowingly moved to the middle of
the road when a speeding car coming from the other side hit him,
killing him on the spot. An eye witness said that he tried to stop
the car but the driver sped away.
Officer ASI Rajesh Kumar said "The eyewitnesses took a note of
the car's registration number 1460. The vehicle is registered with
Authority. The car is registered in the name of the
resident of house number 183 in Sector 55 here. We are trying to
identify the driver, who fled after the accident spot. A case of rash
driving and death due to negligence under sections 279 and 304-A of
the IPC has been registered," reported The Times of India. The
Sector-56 police have sent the baby's body for post-mortem.
But, this death has
established Gurgaon as home to some of the most rash drivers, as it
was only a few weeks back that a bus killed a three year old girl.
There is a serious need for the authorities to put a check on it and
come up with some stringent laws to curb such rash driving.
