Cops clueless in tracing accused, victim’s family smells rat
Student crushed to death outside police school
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, Jan 10: In December last year, Mehvish Pampori, a 7th standard student of Police Public School, Bemina, was crushed to death by a speeding car right outside her school. A month on, the police is clueless in the case.
On 4th of last month, the girl was hit by an unknown vehicle when she was heading towards the school. As per the witnesses, the girl was thrown up in air by the speeding and she fell outside the school gate, in a pool of blood.
After battling for life, for over a week, at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of SKIMS, Soura, she breathed her last.
Till now there has been no breakthrough in the case while the City police gropes for clues making it add to the pile of scores of hit and run cases, which are yet to be solved.
Mehvish lived a few furlongs away from the school across the highway. Her father who runs a mutton shop had been working hard to make her daughter excel in academics.
“Finding a good school right near our residence, we got Mehvish enrolled there hoping she would realize our dreams,” says the family.
But on the fateful day, a few minutes after the girl left home, the family got the bolt from the blue.
“We immediately rushed her to hospital and tried our best to save her life, but then nothing could help us,” the family said
“If police fails to crack a case where a student of its school is killed by a speeding car, the fate of other crimes could only be imagined,” the family said.
The, Bemina residents too have expressed serious concern over the failure of the police to nab the driver of the killer vehicle.
Pertinently, the police reportedly terms the accident as “hit and run case” adding it doesn’t even know the number of the vehicle. “All what we know is that it was white car,” said a police official at a police post there.
But like the bereaved family, the other locals too are not ready to buy the police argument. They claim that the accident took place under the very nose of the police.
They alleged the police was trying to hush up the case and save the guilty.
As for the Police Public School, which the family had pinned hope in for making Mehvish excel in studies, the school management didn’t even bother to express sympathies with the bereaved.
“They did not bother to visit the hospital to see her, or express condolence over her demise let alone using their office to round up the guilty,” the family alleged.
