But he and his father had an accident due to the pit and Aditi lost her father. Aditi is 27 years old and lives with her mother and brother. Aditi was also injured in this accident.
She told that she had left the house with her father around 11 o’clock but around 11.30 we had an accident. A truck was standing in front of the road, so I slowed down the speed of my car but the truck coming from behind did not slow down and hit us. My father came under the truck, I survived.
daughter pleaded with the administration
Aditi told that till now no official of the Metropolitan Municipality has come to meet us, nor any leader, but the worst thing is that after the accident, that road has not been corrected till now. The pits have not yet been filled. Today this accident happened to me, tomorrow someone else may also be a victim. The administration is requested to pay attention to the contractors to whom the work is given. Roads should be fixed. Considering the seriousness of the government, strict steps should be taken.
