A CRPF commando who was part of the Special Duty Group died in a fatal accident in Kalindi Kunj red light when his bike was hit by a dumper. His wife and his daughter were also killed in the accident. However, his other two children miraculously escaped and sustained only minor injuries.
The tragic incident happened at around 1 pm on Tuesday at the busy red light at Kalindi Kunj. Huge crowd gathered at the site and police had a tough time maintaining the traffic on the busy road.
“The dumper hit the bike when the couple was travelling on a motorbike with their three children. The couple and their daughter was crushed to death by the dumper. We chased the dumper when the driver and his helper tried to flee. They were caught and thrashed by the locals,” said an eyewitness who was returning when he saw the accident.
According to police sources, deceased Rajkumar was returning from Aligarh, his native place with his wife Seema and three children. As soon as the family entered Delhi from Noida, it met with the fatal accident in which Rajkumar (31 ) his wife Seema and their 9-year-old daughter Ritu died.
“I rushed the two children aged approx 7 and 4 years who suffered minor injuries to a local hospital. It was traumatic for the children to be at the spot where their parents died,” said Mohammad Aqil, a resident of Jamia Nagar.
It was learnt that the CRPF commando Rajkumar resided at Pushp Vihar in South Delhi. The cops, with the help of the deceased’s mobile, dialled up some numbers to get the identity of the deceased.
“He was serving in the Special Duty group of CRPF. He was on a holiday on Tuesday. When the police gave me a call I was stunned to get the shocking news,” says a colleague of Rajkumar who is also working with CRPF.
The driver and the helper of the dumper — Rambeer and Fakhru — are undergoing treatment at AIIMS after they were thrashed by a group of angry locals after the accident when the duo tried to flee the spot.
