Another mishap at Sanat Nagar square
Kralpora Man Wounded In Head On Car Collision
Srinagar, Nov 18: Within weeks of a killer accident near Sanat Nagar Chowk, another mishap occurred right at the square Friday when a car driver Muhammad Maqbool Wani son of Ghulam Qadir Wani of Kralpora, Chadoora was wounded in a head on collision.
Witnesses said the driver was wounded when his Maruti Alto (JK04A 7150) collided with Taverra (JK09 5749).
Police says it has lodged an FIR and investigations are on. “We have registered an FIR Vide number 226/2011 under section 279 337/RPC and ceased both the vehicles,” the police said.
“The driver of Taverra fled away from spot. We have launched a manhunt to nab him,” it added.
This is the second accident within a month. On October 29 this year, a Kukar Nag man, Muhammad Ibrahim Dar son of Muhammad Abdullah Dar was crushed to death by Tata 407 (JK01D 3291).
Residents expressed anguish over these frequent road accidents and blamed the authorities for leaving this busy highway square in a mess.
“Few years back, government planned to make a flyover on this track to ease out the traffic rush on this faulty designed spot, but that project is yet to take off. The government’s plans exist in their statements only,” said Mushtaq Ahmed, a businessman.
