“My friend and I booked the cab around 10.30pm to shift my luggage from Sector 10A to Sector 17C. Just as we reached the Rajiv Chowk flyover, we realised that the rear tyre on the left side got punctured. Our driver asked us to come out and stand in a corner while he was changing it. When he started removing the tyre, a speeding Bolero hit him from behind, and he died on the spot,” one of the passengers, Jitendra Kumar, told police.
The police received a call about the accident around 10.45pm. “We found two mangled vehicles and the injured cabbie. We rushed him to the civil hospital in Sector 10, where he was declared dead. The SUV that hit the cabbie belongs to DHBVN’s vigilance wing. There were no officials in it,” said ASI Pradeep.
Bolero driver was booked under IPC sections 279 (negligent driving) and 304A (death by negligence) and arrested.
