Udaipur: 3 fatal accidents in two days - Accused not traceable

4 people killed in 3 road accidents in udaipur in 24 hours. Accidents were caused by rashly driven cars. All the three drivers have absconded

Three unfortunate incidents of road accidents in Udaipur in the last 24 hours, have led police to launch multiple manhunts. All the three accidents have occured due to speeding cars crashing into unsuspecting two wheeler riders, killing them on the spot. In each of these incidents, the car driver has escaped from the accident spot. While two cars have been seized by the police, there is no headway on the identification of the car that killed a young boy outside Field Club in Udaipur.

In the early hours of Thursday 9 May, a young boy from Kherwada, was riding across the Saheli Marg, when a speeding car exiting from Field Club rammed into him, killing him on the spot. Allegedly the car re-entered the premises and police are still attempting to figure out the vehicle details from CCTV footage. The deceaseds friend and family are accusing Field Club of shielding the SKODA car owner. While posting this article, we have been told that the police are investigating the matter and results should be known in a while.

At 1030pm on 9 May itself, a Zomato delivery boy, named Mohammad Sabir (38) was returning from his delivery at Pacific Hospital in Bhilon ka Bedla (Udaipur North), when a speeding Alto car being driven on the wrong side of the road came crashing into his bike, killing Sabir on the spot. The Alto has been seized and police are on the lookout for the driver.

A third road accident occured at Kanod in the afternoon on 10 May, where a couple, both SBI (Bank) employees were killed. The couple were returning home to Vallabhnagar at 2pm after attending a community event at a nearby village (Rajpura), when a speeding car, in an attempt to overtake an authorickshaw, crashed in to their injuring them both fatally. Both the husband and wife were taken to hospital, where they were declared dead on arrival.

While nothing can be argued about policing on road safety in these cases, it is obvious that the victims were innocent to the incident and were up and about their daily routines. All four of them met death at the hands of unruly drivers who were driving rashly and after commiting the act, fled from the spot. While the vehicles in the Zomato driver and Kanod case are seized by the police, the accident at Field Club will be a grey area till the CCTV footage is recoved. It is surprising that the police have not been able to even identify the owners of the cars despite having the cars responsible for two accidents in their custody. Details of the car owners are easily available from the Transport department portal.
