Delhi, the capital city of India that bears the legacy of Mughal as well as British reign is blatantly termed the CRIME CAPITAL. Crimes in Delhi are no more limited to scattered incidents caused by outsiders; instead it is more about the city’s deteriorating moral values and loose laws.
In a shocking incident in Delhi, a 32-year-old e-rickshaw driver Ravinder Kumar, was beaten to death allegedly by some men after he objected to them urinate outside the GTB Nagar Metro Station.
“When Ravinder urged the youths to maintain hygiene, one of them got angry. Ravinder then asked them use a toilet instead. This sparked a heated argument. When the group saw other rickshaw pullers, they decided to leave, but threatened Ravinder before leaving,” a senior police officer said.The youths then left, only to return an hour later, around 8pm, with 15-20 men on bikes and e-rickshaws. Narrating Kumar’s ordeal, Anish, another driver, said, “The incident took place within 10 minutes. Most of us were busy ferrying passengers. When I came back to the station after a trip, I found Kumar lying on the ground surrounded by the men. They were hitting him with bricks wrapped in towels. Another driver, Manoj, rushed to call Kumar’s brother, Vijender, but the mob fled by then.”
The 34-year-old had sustained severe internal injuries. He complained of pain in his back. As he tried to walk, he instantly fell. His brother, Vijender carried him into the house, but within five minutes, the pain in his back intensified. They rushed him to Bara Hindu Rao hospital, but the doctors declared him brought dead.
A case has been registered and teams have been formed to nab the accused. Police are trying to find CCTV footage from the area to identify the accused. Police suspect the involvement of DU students. Northwest DCP, Milind Dumbere said that,”The area where the incident took place is full of students living in PGs or rented flats. Their involvement is suspected and teams have been deployed accordingly. The victim’s body has been sent for post-mortem and a case of murder under IPC Section 302 has been registered.”
