Zomato delivery staffer dies in manjha accident, family says no passerby helped

A 28-year-old food delivery executive died in a road accident after he fell off his bike and was mowed down by an unknown vehicle on Badarpur flyover Sunday night. Police said they found a Chinese manjha (kite string) stuck to his two-wheeler and suspect this led to the accident.
According to police, they received a call at 11.56 pm about the incident and rushed to the spot. They found Narender lying dead on the flyover while trucks and other vehicles passed by. DCP (Southeast) Esha Pandey said, “Narender was found lying near Tughlakabad Metro station. His head was crushed by a vehicle and his bike was found damaged at the spot. A stray manjha was also found stuck in the paddle of the bike, near the tyre. We suspect he fell because of it and a vehicle behind his bike hit him.”
At AIIMS Trauma Centre, where Narender’s body was taken, family and colleagues alleged he was lying unattended on the road for nearly an hour and that no one came to his aid.
“We felt helpless… I received a call around midnight and rushed to the flyover. I couldn’t bear to see him… his head was crushed. I kept calling ambulances and tried stopping people, but nobody came forward. My brother was lying there for nearly an hour after his accident. He could have been saved but nobody cared enough…,” alleged his younger brother Puneet (23).
Police said the first call was received before midnight, and that a preliminary enquiry revealed that there was no CCTV at the spot and cameras near the flyover being analysed to identify the offending vehicle. Police also suspect the man was hit by a heavy vehicle as the incident took place after ‘restriction hours’ for such vehicles to ply.
