Road rage: Man 'hits' 2 who objected to his smoking, one dies

Road rage: Man 'hits' 2 who objected to his smoking, one dies”

The victim, Gurpreet Singh, 21, died on Wednesday after battling for life for three days.

The accused, Mahanta, is a practising lawyer under the standing counsel of the Assam government.

Gurpreet Singh and Maninder Singh, students of photography, had gone to AIIMS to finalise locations for shooting a project on nightlife on Delhi's footpaths.

"There was an altercation but we backed off as people there said the man was drunk". While they were having dinner near Safdarjung Hospital, a man came and started smoking on their faces, said a TOI report while quoting a witness.

It is hard to believe that objecting to public smoking can cost a life. Police later confirmed that the accused was drunk. Gurpreet and Maninder chose to leave from there since they did not want to escalate the issue, they said. After the argument, the accused man Rohit Krishna Mohanto, who was drunk, first rammed his vehicle into the motor-cycle - the duo were travelling on - and then an autorickshaw and a private cab.The accused has been taken into custody. He also hit a cab and an autorickshaw before his auto turned off.

Initially, police said, it appeared to be a road accident since Rohit too was injured along with Gurpreet and Maninder, who were unfit to give statements.

After the death of Gurpreet, we will now change the sections in FIR and will take action accordingly.

On Wednesday - after the deceased's family demanded a probe - the police recorded Maninder's statement. However, the police new sections - murder (302) and attempt to murder (307) - in the case after recording Maninder's statement and arrested Mahanta again.

According to the police, Mahanto, a resident of Defence Colony, is a lawyer under the Standing Counsel of Assam government and his father Anil Kumar is a doctor. Maninder said that Mahanta had rammed the bike from behind at great speed, dragging the two-wheeler for a distance before crashing into an Ola cab and a rickshaw.
