Accident victim’s family alleges police apathy

New Delhi, July 19 (IANS) The family of a 50-year-old hit-and-run victim on Sunday accused the Delhi Police and government officials concerned of inaction in the matter.

The accusation comes as Delhi Police got the flak for its handling of the brutal murder on Thursday of a Class 11 girl student in Anand Parbat area of central Delhi. The youth wing of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) staged a protest outside Delhi Police headquarters here over “police inaction” in the murder case of the 19-year-old who, her family said, was being stalked by her assailant for two years.

Dalbir Singh Gosain, 58, died after an unidentified car hit him near the Central Secretariat in the national capital on June 13. He was working as an upper division clerk in the home ministry.

“He was walking back from office when a speeding car hit him. He was rushed to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, where he breathed his last on July 14 morning,” his daughter-in-Law Seema Gosain told IANS.

“The whole road is under CCTV surveillance but officials claim the footage is not clear… there were two cars passing by at the same time hence facts cannot be verified. What is the use of CCTV then,” she asked.

“We wonder if the car belonged to some VVIP… they are trying to hush up the matter,” she added.

When contacted, a senior police official said: “An FIR was lodged in the North Avenue police station but was later transferred to Mandir Marg police station.”

He said he could not provide an update in the case since he was not in office, it being a Sunday.
