Gaurav, a 35 year old resident of Noida, Delhi, died due to a heart attack on the 8th of September, at a hospital.
Gaurav, who was driving with his parents, was stopped by the traffic police on the grounds of violating a traffic rule. The traffic police and Gaurav soon started arguing, during which Gaurav fell unconscious.
He was immediately taken to a hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead. According to the doctors, Gaurav died of a heart attack.
Gaurav was a software engineer and worked at a software company in Noida Sector 138, as a sales manager. Moolchand Sharma, Gaurav’s father, alleged the traffic police of misbehaving with Gaurav and using abusive language.
The incident came to light after the Ghaziabad Police Station launched an investigation regarding the matter.
Mr. Sharma said, “There has to be a way for anything. It is fine that traffic rules have been changed. One (police) should be polite and ask somebody to pull their vehicle over for inspection. It wasn’t a case of rash driving or anything. There were two elderly people sitting inside the car, yet they hit the car with batons… This is no way of checking. I don’t think there’s any rule that allows it (sic.)
Vaibhav Krishna, the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Gautam Budh Nagar, said, “After inquiry, it came to light that the deceased was prima facie diabetic in nature and he died due to heart attack. The place of incident was near CISF Cut in district Ghaziabad. It happened at around 6:00 P.M.”
The Ghaziabad Police was informed about the incident.
After an initial investigation, the Police said they had no traffic police or constables at the spot. Vineet Jaiswal, the Superintendent of Police (SP) of Noida, said, “Our traffic officers don’t use stick anymore. Moreover, there was no checking team at the spot.”
However, the Ghaziabad Police Station launched an investigation regarding the same. The investigation is underway.
