Ravenshaw student’s accident death: Dereliction of duty by traffic cops suspected

Cuttack: A day after a Plus III girl student of Ravenshaw University here was run over by a truck in front of the campus here yesterday, Cuttack DCP Akhileshwar Singh today hinted at dereliction of duty by traffic cops, who were present near the accident spot.

Speaking to media, the DCP said prima facie there seems to be dereliction of duty on the part of three traffic personnel. However, an investigation into the incident is underway by an ACP rank traffic cop and the probe report will be submitted by this evening, he added.

Earlier on the day, a group of students staged a protest in front of campus demanding compensation for family members of the deceased. They also demanded imposition of restrictions on plying of heavy vehicles inside the city.
