Real tragedy: Deceased DTC drivers wanted a better future for their children

New Delhi: Pramod, one of the DTC drivers who was killed in the road accident on Thursday night in Rani Bagh, had a dream of better future for his children but the hope was crushed under the wheel of a truck which ended his life. Talking to Millennium Post, the family members of the deceased stated that Pramod had two children Ritesh and Aditya, both minors, and are studying in a private school. "My brother had thought that the suffering he faced in his life will not let the children suffer the same situation.

Pramod wanted to give his children a proper education that's why he admitted them in a private school so that in future they can live a dignified life. All his dream is now crushed," said Pramod's brother Praveen with numb eyes. According to family members when they came to know about the incident they ran from pillar to post in search of Pramod but in vain. Praveen further stated that he ran to different hospitals in search of his brother but no one had any information and the situation continued for more than half an hour after which a police man informed him about the dead body of his brother.
For the family members, they wanted the government to take care of the education of the children and also support the family of the deceased. The thoughts of another driver Sunil who also died in the incident was much like Pramod as he also wanted his children to lead a good life. A DTC scheduled in charge from Rohini Depot stated that when the bus was breakdown near Madhuban chowk flyover, Pramod made a phone call to the workshop and told them that the vehicle should be repaired as soon as possible because the road is very busy. The family member stated that instead of repairing the vehicle on the road it should have been towed by a crane. "The road where the incident occurred was busy. If the repairing was not done on the road Pramod might have been saved," said his family member.
