Srinagar, Sep 21, CNS: Family members from Central Kashmir’s Budgam district Monday accused that police initiated no action against a driver allegedly responsible for the death of a seventh class student.

     The family members told CNS that on September 7 this month, Tata Mobile (JK04B-9887) Driver Irshad Ahmed Dar due to negligence and rash driving hit a motor cycle (JK04A-4766) and the two seventh class students riding on motor cycle received critical injuries near Soresh Khag. “One student Ishfaq Nabi Rather died on way to hospital while another student Nisar Hasan Teli has been battling for life at SKIMS,” the family members said and alleged that instead of putting the erring driver behind the bar he was released only after a day.

    They alleged that one of the police man who happens to be a relative of the driver helped him to ‘play’ with the law. “We appeal to Director General and Inspector General of Police to personally look into the matter,” they said.

    When contacted a police official said that a formal FIR vide number 72/2015 under section 279, 33 RPC stands registered against the driver. “We have filed a case and to punish or release the accused is the job of the court,” he said. (CNS)
