A 28-year-old Mumbai youth died while undergoing treatment, two days after an alleged road rage incident in which he was dragged by a dumper truck driver following a heated argument.
The youth, identified as Narendra Pawar, passed away on Tuesday night, police said. The road rage incident took place on SV Road in the early hours of Sunday.
According to the police, the incident occurred on SV Road in the early hours of Sunday when Pawar, along with his friend, was riding his bike and got into a clash with the truck driver while attempting a U-turn. The situation escalated into a physical altercation, prompting Pawar to start recording the driver’s actions. In response, the driver began verbally abusing him. Enraged, Pawar tried to open the door of the truck, but the driver started moving the vehicle, dragging Pawar for a certain distance. Eventually, Pawar fell to the ground when the dumper truck collided with a divider, as stated by a police officer.
Following the incident, the driver fled the scene, and Pawar was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital by his friends. The Goregaon police have registered a case and arrested the driver, Parmatma Sahani, under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
