Kokernag man dies in Sanat Nagar mishap
2nd death in south City in fortnight
Srinagar, Oct 29: Within a fortnight, the south City witnessed another death in road mishaps Saturday when Muhammad Ibrahim Dar son of Muhammad Abdullah Dar of Kukarnag was crushed to death by an allegedly speeding Tata 407 (JK01D 3291) when he was walking in the Sanat Nagar area.
Police says it has lodged an FIR and investigations are on. “We have registered an FIR number 208/2011 under section 279 304A/RPC, ceased the vehicle and arrested the driver… The investigations are on,” Munshi Saddar Police Station told Greater Kashmir.
This is the second killer accident in a fortnight. On 15th of this month, Muhammad Salam son of Muhammad Gaffar, resident of West Bengal was crushed to death by a speeding “unknown vehicle” near Ram Bagh Bridge early morning. Police said the vehicle couldn’t be traced.
Residents of south City have shown a lot of resentment over frequent road accidents and have blamed the authorities for failing to “tame the erring drivers.”
“These road accidents have become a routine here. Every month two to three persons get killed by rash driving and authorities have turned a blind eye to the issue. They (authorities) seem to be least bothered about such terrible accidents in which people lose their lives,” aggrieved residents of Sanat Nagar said.
When contacted the concerned authorities said that the “traffic laws need to be reinforced”. “The motor vehicle act should be strengthened which will result in deterrence in overall traffic violations. Stringent attention to motor vehicle rules and procedures will make violators more accountable,” Superintendent Traffic Police, Maqsood ul Zaman told Greater Kashmri.
“Despite limited workforce, we are enhancing our actions to curb all sorts of traffic violations and will continue to do so in future,” Zaman added.
