Okhla resident captures this pic in Lajpat Nagar, During a visit to Lajpat Nagar on Saturday a resident of Okhla captured this moment and shared it with the portal. He told OT that an accident took place on the road with a many local shopkeepers rushing to help the rickshaw puller.
Nobody was hurt in the accident but the front vehicle of the rickshaw was damaged and the rickshaw puller was demanding compensation and hence a heated argument took place between him and the car owner, who was most probably reluctant in agreeing to it.
And as the argument raged, many others too turned up trying to resolve the issue and clear the road so as to avoid traffic snarl in the market area that wore a deserted look today with maximum temperature soaring up to 43 degrees Celsius.
Anyhow things were sorted out with some residents’ interference. Later on residents’ insistence, the car driver fled from the spot leaving the rickshaw puller high and dry. It appeared that car driver made his way without paying the fine to the poor rickshaw puller.
Later on residents were seen talking among themselves that how many a time, it is the poor who is the victim in such road accident with the mighty getting away.
