It was a few hours ago that OT.COM had reported about an accident taking place on Jamia Millia Islamia road that connects Okhla. However, full details were not proved. OT.COM has come to know through sources, an eyewitness Ishtiaq, who said a rickshaw driver sustained serious injury after a blue car allegedly hit the bike and rickshaw also.
OT.COM was not able to authenticate the sequence of the accident.
However, it is learned that the poor rickshaw puller was hurt in the accident.
Such accidents are on the rise in the locality. Residents and the administration blame it to rash driving. It is common to see some people, including youth bikers, driving like mad, least bothered about consequences of their insane driving.
Residents still remember how a few accidents had taken place on the night of Eid a few years ago when rogue bikers crashed leading to severe injury. Residents lamented that how a few years ago two youths, who after getting a job in Saudi Arabia, were returning from market after binge shopping, met with accident as a man driving four vehicle hit their bike from behind. They were hospitalized and recovered, but their journey to the Middle East ended.
Residents said there are many such incidents in Okhla.
