Jaipur shocker: Public shun injured man on road even as wife, daughter lie dead

In a shocking case of public apathy, a man clutching on to his son’s hand lay on the road crying for help inside a tunnel next to the bodies of his wife and infant daughter with nobody stopping by for around 40 minutes after a speeding truck hit his motorcycle.

The 26-year-old woman and the eight-month-old infant who were run over by the truck died in the accident inside the newly opened Ghat Ki Guni tunnel here yesterday while the man and his son escaped with injuries.

Police said the injured man kept crying for help for around 40 minutes but the motorists ignored their cries and every vehicle passed by without stopping.

The accident victims were attended to only when a staffer of a toll booth noticed the crying husband and his son inside the tunnel on a CCTV monitor.

‘Kanhaiya Lal along with his 26-year old wife Guddi, four-year- old son Tanish and eight-month-old Arushi was on his way to in-laws’ house in Luniawas village from their house in Thikariya village yesterday when a speeding truck hit their motorcycle 300 metres inside the tunnel,’ police said today. Guddi and Arushi were run over by the truck while Kanhaiya and Tanish received minor injuries.
