The capital city witnessed yet another incident of road rage, in which a Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) bus driver was yesterday brutally beaten to death by a biker near Mundka, West Delhi, while the passengers of the bus looked on.

Ashok Kumar Singh, 42-year-old DTC bus driver was thrashed with a helmet by the accused, Vijay, after the bus hit the motorcycle from behind.

Vijay and his mother fell off the bike when the bus grazed by it. Angered by this, he entered into an altercation with the bus driver, which soon turned into a brutal murder.

This appalling incident has yet again made the citizens cringe in shame and question their aggressive behaviors on roads. However, what is more shameful is that while the bus driver was being assaulted in broad daylight, the passengers, including the bus conductor, remained silent spectators and did nothing to put a hold to the brutal act. They did not even try to nab the accused, who fled from the spot after perpetrating the assault.

The accused was later arrested by the police in night.

The Delhi government has announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh to Kumar’s family and has also promised a permanent job in the transport department to one of his family members.

The bus conductor and other DTC drivers later staged a protest at Rohini bus depot. But what’s the point of protesting now? None of these protests or monetary compensations has the power to bring back Ashok Kumar Singh to life.

  • Arvind Kejriwal apologised to Bikram Singh Majithia
  • BJP leader says that this apology established himself
  • BJP also alleged that Kejriwal did nothing while state aced so many problems

A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal apologised to former Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia for alleging that he was involved in the drug trade, the BJP Delhi unit on Friday said he has exposed himself as a “liar”.

The BJP also alleged that he was doing nothing even while the people of the national capital were facing a number of issues due to sealing.

Addressing a press conference here, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi unit President Manoj Tiwari said: ” What we have been saying for long has been proved today. He is a liar. He has apologised to Majithia for making false allegations against him.”

“He is on his way to apologise to (Union Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley ji and (Union Transport Minister) Nitin Gadkari ji for making false allegations,” the BJP leader said. Kejriwal is facing defamation cases in court for levelling allegations against Jaitley and Gadkari.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief on Thursday apologised to the Shiromani Akali Dal leader in Punjab for making allegations of involvement in the drug trade, following which the latter said that he will withdraw a defamation suit filed in an Amristar court.

Tiwari, who represents the northeast Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha, accused Kejriwal of misleading the people over the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

BJP MLA Vijender Gupta accused the AAP chief of only rendering “lip service” on the sealing drive and urged the Chief Minister to hold an all-party meeting with the Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring committee overseeing the drive.

“Since December last, Kejriwal is only doing lip service on the issue of sealing drive. He has done nothing to stop it,” Gupta, the Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, said.

He said that though Lt Governor Anil Baijal cleared the file for notifying 351 roads in the capital on February 8, the matter is still pending. “Why hasn’t he (Kejriwal) notified the 351 roads in the last 45 days?” Gupta asked.

BJP leaders are calling this apology a gimmick.

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology. Gupta warned the Monitoring Committee members not to act outside the law and said: “If the monitoring committee acts against law, then the BJP will oppose it.”

“We are going to inform the three municipal corporations of Delhi not to follow the commands of the Monitoring Committee if it goes against the law,” he said. “The MCDs should approach the court and also make Kejriwal a party,” the BJP leader added. IANS
