At last Ambazari police appeared to have woken up to initiate some progress, albeit slowly, in the two accident cases that resulted into the death of two people including a four year old girl Sara. After Nagpur Today reported about Ambazari police’s apathy in both the cases –a hit and run case near Shankar Nagar square and a train ride tragedy at Krazy Castle aqua park, the superiors took the cops to task that resulted into some development in both the cases.
Describing the development in both the cases, DCP Abhilash Kumar told Nagpur Today, “As far the bike accident case was concerned, it turned out that that culprit was minor and a minor cannot be arrested under the Juvenile Act. We have produced this boy to the juvenile court.”
Kumar however indicated little progress in the Krazy Castle train ride tragedy. The amusement park is run by Haldiram’s Rajendra Agrawal in association with Nagpur Improvement Trust. “We have asked for the relevant documents from the amusement park management to ascertain the actual cause behind the accident. A copy of agreement between Krazy Castle management and NIT has been sought along with fitness certificate of all the equipments and amusement rides being operated in this aqua park. If would found any lacunae in these facilities then further course of action would be decided and the responsibilities would be fixed against the management. But that could only be one after we receive all the documents we sought from the management,” Abhilash Kumar told Nagpur Today.
In the first case a ruthlessly driven hi-end sports Ninja bike hits a bicycle rider Dinesh Jethani on the road opposite Wockhardt hospital in Ambazari on April 22 at around 7 pm. Jethani died in the hospital the next day, while the youth riding the bike was set free. When Nagpur Today investigated the matter it turned out that the concerned boy riding the bike was from Chandrapur and belongs to a rich family. It surfaced that Ambazari police let the biker free after taking his killer machine into custody.
In the second case a four year old girl Sara Mohammed Qadar was killed in Krazy Castle after she fell from the train ride facility in the amusement park on April 8. She succumbed to the injuries by the time she was rushed to the hospital. Almost a fortnight after the tragedy, Ambazari police woke booked two persons for their negligence in handling the train ride. However police failed to explain the noticeably longer time taken to act in the incident. Interestingly, only the train operator and its care taker were booked, leaving the owner of the amusement facility untouched.
This correspondent brought both the cases to the knowledge of city Police Commissioner KK Pathak and DCP Abhilash Kumar who escalated the cases further. Only after the intervention from these officials the probe picked up little pace.
