Fun for Elite, Death for the Poor
Such incident, particularly by senior corporate professionals has increased over the past few years. A senior police official [who wished anonymity] told us that such persons use their influence and high level contacts to get over such incidents. Such cases are particularly high among those who are new to the city and come from States, that have virtually no ‘law and order’ in place, he said, before disconnecting our call. The impact of the collision was such high that an Auto was completely torn apart, beyond recognition. Eye-witnesses said it was a horror to watch the ‘White maniac’ striking pedestrians and clueless Auto Drivers.
Newsisim team, strongly condemns such incidents and is of the view that such persons be booked under stringent sections rather than procedures and sections that provide ‘easy and free passage’ to accused.
