Road rage: DTC bus driver thrashed to death in Delhi; passengers kept looking

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.
