Millennium Post - - Mp City -

GU­RU­GRAM: A mur­der­ous road rage was again wit­nessed in the city when a per­son was beaten mer­ci­lessly with iron rods by a group of men. The in­ci­dent oc­curred near New Colony on De­cem­ber 4.

The vic­tim who has been iden­ti­fied as Anoop has now filed a com­plaint with the po­lice af­ter be­ing ad­mit­ted to the hospi­tal where he was get­ting treated. The po­lice, mean­while, have iden­ti­fied the men af­ter re­triev­ing the CCTV im­ages. In what was an­other ex­am­ple of civic ap­a­thy, a host of ve­hi­cles can be seen pass­ing through the road at the time when the per­son was be­ing beaten.

In­ci­dents of road rage is not a new phenomenon in Gu­ru­gram. In the past, there have been sev­eral in­ci­dents of vi­o­lence owing to un­con­trolled ag­gres­sion ex­pe­ri­enced on the city road. Lim­ited park­ing spa­ces have also con­trib­uted a great deal to the road rage in­ci­dents.

In dif­fer­ent in­ci­dents, road rage has also re­sulted in the death of the vic­tims. What makes the mat­ter worse is the cul­ture of open drink­ing around the city that fur­ther wors­ens the sit­u­a­tion in some cases.

“Even af­ter the Haryana Gov­ern­ment’s ban on the open drink­ing, peo­ple still flout the rules at Sukhrali and ar­eas nearby Sec­tor 17. Fur­ther, the prob­lem of road rage is also a ma­jor prob­lem in the area. Most of the com­muters af­ter dark drive rashly. There have been var­i­ous in­ci­dents of al­ter­ca­tion be­tween the com­muters in the area,” said Sukhdev Sehrawat, a city res­i­dent.
