Truck crushes cop’s daughter to death in Sadar area

: In a grisly road accident, a young daughter of a policeman was crushed to death by a speeding truck at a stretch between LIC Square and Gaddigodam Square here on Tuesday afternoon. The driver of the killer truck fled the spot after the fatal mishap fearing backlash from nearby people. However, the vehicle has been impounded and the absconding driver is being hunted by cops.

The deceased has been identified as Sakshi Bhushanwar (20), resident of Pachpaoli. Sakshi’s father is Naik Police Constable at Ganeshpeth Police Station
According to sketchy reports, Sakshi was riding an Activa (MH-49/Q 9047) and was probably returning home on Tuesday afternoon. As she was passing through the stretch between LIC Square and Gaddigodam Square, a rashly driven Eicher truck rammed Sakshi’s Activa with forceful impact. As a result, Sakshi crashed on the road and came under the wheels of the speeding truck. Her head was crushed and she died on the spot. Her body lay on the road for quite some time until cops from Sadar Police Station arrived and sent the body to a government hospital for post-mortem. The fatal road accident sparked tension in the nearby area but timely intervention by cops averted any untoward incident.

Sadar police have booked the absconding driver under relevant sections and mounted a search to nab him.

Details are awaited.
