DOM­BIVLI: A 32-year-old man died af­ter his two-wheeler was hit by a truck on Sonarpada Road in Dom­bivli on Thurs­day.

The truck driver, Vin­od­ku­mar Ru­dra Mishra, 50, who hails from Ut­tar Pradesh, was ar­rested and re­manded in po­lice cus­tody for three days.

The de­ceased, Ki­ran Manohar Cha­van, worked as ATM ser­vice man and was a res­i­dent of Nilje area in Dom­bivli. He is sur­vived by his wife and a one-year-old son. On Thurs­day, on the day of Rak­sha Band­han, Cha­van told his three sis­ters that he will be back by evening to be to­gether for the fes­ti­val.

He had hardly crossed 2 kilo­me­tres, when a truck hit Cha­van’s bike from be­hind at Man­pada cir­cle. Cha­van lost con­trol and fell. The truck ran over Cha­van.

His neigh­bour Di­pak Gaund, 43, passed by the ac­ci­dent site and saw a huge crowd. “I re­turned home and saw that my neigh­bour’s bike was not there. I alerted the other neigh­bours and Cha­van’s fam­ily.”

“He had told his sis­ters that the work load is less be­cause of Rak­sha Band­han and he would be back soon,” added Gaund.
