!! HELPING A INJURED IS VERY COSTLIER IN NOIDA !!
“SC GUIDELINES NOW PROTECT GOOD SAMARITANS WHO HELP ROAD ACCIDENT VICTIMS”
According to the guidelines given by Supreme Court if you help a road accident victim, you should expect to be treated with respect by the police, hospitals and the courts. But this guideline is currently not followed by some police officers of Noida (Uttar Pradesh).
16th April, 2017 , Sahil Bansal a local resident of Sec-25 was on his way back to home from Spice Mall near Noida Stadium. While driving his car to spice mall red light Sahil’s car get hitted by an over speeding bike after breaking its traffic signal. The bike driver gets injured. Sahil immediately report to the PCR standing nears the incident happened and took the bike driver to the hospital in his car. According to the government medical reports the bike driver was drunk. Sahil helped in starting the treatment in the hospital and also helped in calling the driver’s family members. The police officer on duty asks Sahil to leave his car in the police station and told him that he can take his car tomorrow because of paper work. Sahil left the car in the police station of Sec-20 and went home. Next day morning when Sahil reached the police station and ask for his car the authority ask for some money to return the car, when Sahil questions their actions of asking for bribe for no reason the police officer refused to return the car. Sahil asks the authority to file a complaint against the bike driver but the police officers of Sec-20 Noida refused to file the complaint and in addition they turned the case against him because he has the “BIGGER VEHICLE”. Sahil argued that according to doctor medical reports the bike driver was drunk and it was him who broke the traffic signal and hit his car but the officers were not ready to listen to him. Frustrated Sahil as a working person in multinational company who could not go to his office for a whole week warned the authority that he will complaint to their senior officers. The police officer threatened him back by saying “TU KAR JO TUJHE KARNA HAI AUR AGAR TUNE AISA KUCH KIYA TO TERE KHILAAF JHOOTHI SHIKAYAT KARWAYENGE”. Cleverly Sahil RECORDED the whole conversation in his mobile phone and also tweeted to CM Yogi and PM Narendra Modi about this at the same time.
Sahil got replied from senior officers of Uttar Pradesh that SHO Sec-20 Noida to take the necessary action but Sahil got self exposed by Sec-20 police that Sahil hit the bike driver. The Sec-20 police filed a false complaint against sahil by telling the bike driver that they will help him get compensation by filing complaint against the car driver. Sahil was ‘made accused’ because he is fighting against the corrupt police officers by putting complaint against them to CM Yogiadityanath and senior officers. After struggling in court and police stations Sahil finally got his car back approximately 1 month later and when he got his car back the car’s tires were changed, glasses were broken and the car was also used by the police. The same was published in newspapers also but no action has still taken against this misconduct, Sec-20 police is continuously torturing Sahil by tweeting those senior officers which were twitted by Sahil that Sahil hit the bike driver.
Big question that arises is ‘what was Sahil’s mistake?’ Even after helping a drunken person who hits the car with his bike Sahil gets a false complaint against him, got his car’s tires changed and glass broken. His professional life got affected because he had to take leaves from his office to reach police stations and attend court hearings. Even after the Supreme Court guidelines that any person who helps a road accident victim should be treated with respect by the police, the court and hospitals, people like Sahil are getting molest by these police officers whose duty is to protect people but in return of the salaries given to them by the government, they miss use the government post provided to them and unnecessarily irritate the responsible and innocent citizens who tries to help the people in need. Government has changed, rules and regulations have also changed with it but Uttar Pradesh police behaviour against innocent citizens is as usual. Sahil is in troubles because of these corrupt officers whose prime motive is to molest and earn money from innocent people. Seeking justice is everyone’s right and Sahil did his best to take it but still those greedy police officers are roaming free and targeting more people like Sahil. Government needs to take strict actions against these police officers and the whole case should be investigated from the start.
Till when people like Sahil will get molest by these greedy officers? When justice will be given to them? When the country will be free from corruption? Even after so many steps by the Indian government corruption is still consuming the country and innocent people are paying the price.
