Truck driver jumps to his death after accidentally killing three cows with his vehicle
In Sultanpur, a truck driver jumped to death after accidentally killing three cows with his vehicle.

The driver, fearing assault, jumped into a river. The driver has been identified as Manubhai and the vehicle's cleaner as Mohsin Raees Khan. Both of them jumped into the river. While trying to run away, their vehicle had hit another truck and come to a halt and later they jumped into the river.

While the Khan was able to swim to safety, the driver could not. Police has sent divers to look for the driver's body. According to police reports, the driver had neither contacted the family nor the owner of the transport company.

"I sat the whole night on a rock. I was shivering and running fever but preferred to sit there. We jumped into the river because we were scared for our lives and thought we would not be spared for killing the cows. Three-four people were abusing us. The water was enough to drown us, but he knows swimming," the cleaner had said.

According to the police the trucks were supposed to load wheat from Sultanpur and take it to Gujarat.

Police has booked the truck driver under Section 429 of the IPC (mischief by killing or maiming cattle etc, an offence punishable with imprisonment of up to five years).
