A motorist allegedly crashed his car into a scooter and dragged the rider on its roof for around 350 metres in the Keshav Puram neighbourhood of the national capital on Friday, in a near repetition of the Kanjhawala hit-and-drag event.
The force of the accident was so severe, according to the FIR filed at the Keshav Puram police station, that the scooter rider was ejected from the pilot seat of his two-wheeler and landed on the vehicle’s roof, while the pillion rider died on the scene. The biker was then allegedly pulled for 350 metres, according to police, who added that five people were arrested in connection with the crime.
The rider was taken to a local hospital, according to the police.
In a similar incident at Khanjawala on New Year’s night, 20-year-old Anjali Singh, who was driving a scooter, was allegedly rammed by a car and dragged for several kilometres as she held on to the vehicle in Outer Delhi’s Kanjhawala area.
The woman was found dead in the middle of the road, with her clothes tattered and torn.
A total of seven persons, including the five occupants of the car, were arrested in connection with the incident.
