Mumbai: Nilofer Hussain, daughter of Sayed Hussain, the taxi driver who was killed in a drunk-driving accident on the Eastern Expressway in Mumbai, has told the media that she will “ensure justice for her father”.

The accused Janhavi Gadkar, was driving her Audi Q3 at a speed of more than 120kmph, when she slammed into the taxi. The impact was so strong, that the front of the taxi was entirely crushed, instantly killing the 57- year- old Sayed Hussain. Gas cutters had been employed to retrieve his body from the damaged car.

“Irresponsible, is small word to describe the people who did this. How can you do this? This happens because people have an attitude that it is India, and anything can be done here. That is the main reason why people think that drinking and driving is okay. Because they think, at the end of the day, if they have money, they can get away with it. People need to change their attitude,” she told a news channel.

Nilofer told the media outlet, that the news of the accident came as a big shock to the family, as her father, who had been driving a taxi for the past 30 years, was never involved even in a minor accident.

“This is absolutely horrendous. My dad has been working as a cab driver since a long, long time. He has been driving for more than 25 years and his has been the safest pair of hands behind the wheel. He has worked extremely hard all his life and he has never had any accident. Not even a minor accident.”

Nilofer added, that none of the authorities tried to reach out to her family.

“We haven’t even heard from the police. They have not even acknowledged us. No one has even turned up to say what has happened. Just because he was a cab driver, it does not mean that he had no existence. This is nonsense, what were the police doing?”  Nilofer  was reported as saying to NDTV.
