Sandili Nagar, 16-year-old girl whose father died on the spot after their vehicle met with an accident with Smriti Irani’s convoy on Saturday, has alleged that after the accident took place she pleaded HRD minister for help but she ignored her.
“We were going to attend a marriage ceremony and our motor cycle’s speed was very slow. Suddenly, Smriti Irani’s vehicle hit us and our motorcycle got slipped. She came out of her car to see us. My father was lying injured on road after the mishap. I asked her to help him but she denied,” Sandili said.
Sandili who also got injured in the accident and received head injuries said, “Had she helped us our father could have been saved.”
“Our father was lying injured on spot. When Smriti Irani came down from her car, my sister pleaded before her to take our father to hospital but she ignored, said Abhishek Nagar, Sandili’s elder brother.
“We demand that action must be taken against her and our grievances must be heard. We are not a rich family; we live on rent and our father was the only one working for our livelihood,” he said.
Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani escaped unhurt after her car hit a vehicle from her cavalcade on Yamuna Expressway late Saturday night.
Ramesh Nagar, who was riding a motorcycle, was killed in the chain of collisions which had led to a huge pile up of vechiles on the highway.
Irani was returning from Vrindavan after attending a convention organised by Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha when the accident took place.
Sources said the pilot vehicle in Irani’s cavalcade rammed into another vehicle, which had met with an accident on the expressway. Her car then rammed into the pilot vehicle after failing to control its speed.
SSP Rakesh Singh said that Ramesh Nagar was killed during the collision, adding the real cause of death will be known after an inquiry into the chain of events.
