In a disturbing incident, a 21-year-old biker was killed on Thursday after he crashed into an iron wire used to tie two police barricades cut through his neck and slit his throat in north west Delhi’s Netaji Subhash Place.
“There were two barricades in the road which were tied to each other by a wire. There was no light when he was coming towards the barricades and the wire hit him,” Sunil, a relative of the victim said.
“He succumbed to his injuries a little while after being hit. There was no police officer placed at this place and it was the locals who tried to help him. There should have been a PCR van over here. Fifteen minutes before this incident, another man was also hit by the wire and he got a scar from the wire,” the relative added.
The victim, identified as Abhishek, was returning home at 1 am, when he met with the freak accident on the road where the wire was tied between the barricades by the beat constables. The police said the deceased worked as a private cab driver and was returning to his Netaji Subhash Place residence.
“When he reached near the Subhash Place police station, he was passing through four police barricades. His neck got stuck in the wire that was tied between two of the barricades. He died on the spot,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Aslam Khan said.
A case has also been registered with the Delhi Police under section 304A of Indian Penal Code (causing death by negligence).
