“She was getting down from an e-rickshaw as she was about to move forward a Pulsar bike came from nowhere and hit her. The boys sitting on the red bike fled from the spot. The ferocity of the accident could be gauged from the fact that my sister flew and slumped on the divider. She got injuries on her head. A few people rushed her to a local hospital where doctors declared her brought dead,” Khatoon’s brother Jauwad Hassan, who did his post graduation from MCRC, Jamia Millia Islamia, told OKHLATIMES.

The body has been taken for post-mortem to AIIMS.

Hassan told OKHLATIMES that the incident has left the family in shock. Khatoon, a resident of Bihar’s Madhubani, is survived with five children, three sons and two daughters, and husband. The family lives in Abul Fazal Enclave and the incident too took place in AFE.

“Okhla has gone to the dogs. Such cases of rash driving by rogue bikers have increased. After the incident we met the local police who told us that seven traffic policemen have been assigned duty in the locality to implement driving rules but they rarely come to this locality for fear of their life as some residents will beat them up. Till now we have got no clue about the accident. We want justice,” said Hassan.

E-rickshaw terrorize local markets by ameture under aged drives. I have faced accidents two times and both the E-rickshaw driver was of age 12 to 13 years. Many of my friends are going though the same troubles.
