Maken, kin of road rage victim meet police commissioner

NEW DELHI: Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken, along with family members of deceased Congress Seva Dal worker Vinod Mehra, on Wednesday met the Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and sought immediate action into his death.
Maken requested Patnaik not to reveal the identity of the young boy and also provide him with police protection, as he was the only witness to the crime.
He also requested the Commissioner not to call the young boy to the police station as he is under fear after his father was shot dead before his eyes.
"The Commissioner has promised to take prompt action in the murder case, and the culprits would be arrested soon," Maken told reporters at Police Headquarters at ITO.
However, he denied any political angle into the murder but urged the police to probe every angle in the case and bring the criminals to book.
"Road rage has become a major threat on Delhi roads and if people are allowed to freely carry revolvers and pistols and take law into their hands, then where is Delhi headed," Maken asked.
Around 3 am on Tuesday, Mehra was returning to his home in Geeta Colony, along with his son Kunal, in a car after attending the wedding of his friend's daughter in Alipur, when they had a verbal duel with four persons riding in the van.
Believed to be a case of road rage, Verma was shot dead on the flyover in north west Delhi's Bhalswa Dairy.
