Homeguard Hit By Scooter At Iffco Chk Dies In Hosp | Gurgaon News – Times of India

GURGAON: A homeguard, who was critically injured after being hit by a scooter while he was on G20 traffic management duty at IFFCO Chowk on September 8, succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday.
Yogesh Kumar (30) was deployed at IFFCO Chowk to guide traffic headed for Delhi. Gurgaon traffic police had issued an advisory and traffic diversion in view of the G20 Summit.
Around 7.45pm on August 8, a man riding a scooter was asked to stop at the junction. Instead, he accelerated and crashed into Yogesh, who tried to stop him.
Yogesh fell on the road and suffered grievous injuries to the head and face. The scooter rider, identified as Pushpender, also sustained injuries.
Pushpender tried to escape on his scooter, but was caught by other cops deployed nearby. Both Yogesh and Pushpender were taken to hospital.
The accused suffered minor injuries and was released after first-aid.
A relative of Yogesh said after the accident, the police team took Yogesh to Max Hospital but due to unavailability of beds, he was taken to Medanta — The Medicity. There, he was admitted to the ICU.
“On Monday, doctors declared him brain dead. He succumbed to the critical injuries sustained in the accident,” he said.
The homeguard’s kin has demanded that a family member be given a government job and compensation. “Yogesh died on duty and should be compensated,” he said.
Police had earlier said there are no CCTV cameras at the spot where the accident took place.
An FIR was registered against Pushpender under sections 186 (obstructing a public servant), 333 (voluntarily causing hurt to a public servant), 279 (rash driving) and 337 (causing hurt by an act endangering life) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at Sector 18 police station on Saturday.
On Tuesday, Section 304A (death in accident) was added to the FIR.
