New Delhi: Two fatal accidents were reported in South Delhi in the last 24 hours. In the first incident, an eight-year-old girl was killed after she was allegedly hit by a speeding car. The incident occurred on Wednesday afternoon at South Delhi’s Mandi Road. Police said that they have arrested the accused driver.

The girl is identified as Komal, a resident of village Jonapur, while the accused has been identified as Sagar, a resident of Joga Mohalla Mandi.

According to Atul Kumar Thakur, DCP (South district), on December 4, at around 1:10 pm when Komal was on way home from her school, Nagar Nigam Vidyalaya in Gagaipur, she was hit by a Mahindra Scorpio car. The driver of the car took her to a trauma centre where she was declared brought dead by the doctors. Police were informed regarding the accident by the hospital. A case under section 279/304A of Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered at Fatehpur Beri police station and the accused driver was arrested, said the DCP. “Sagar works as a driver and at the time of the incident he was driving his personal car,” the DCP added. Meanwhile, father of Komal, Ramdeen Maurya, a daily-wager, has donated her eyes to the hospital.

In another incident, a 59-year-old woman died while three others including her husband were injured after they met with an accident near Kohinoor Mall in South Delhi’s Greater Kailash area. The deceased has been identified as Krishna Singla, a resident of Dwarka. Police said that her husband Mahavir Prasad was driving the car when he dozed off which led to the accident.

According to a senior police official, at late night on December 3, Krishna, her husband and a relative were on way back home after attending a wedding. “No police control room (PCR) call was received regarding the accident. Injured occupants of the car reached the hospital themselves where Krishna was declared brought dead while others were discharged after the treatment,” said the senior police official.

“A case under section 279/304A of Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered at CR Park police station. The body was handed over to her family after autopsy,” said the police official.
