UP: Nine-Year-Old Dies After Being Run Over By BJP MP’s Car In Basti

A nine-year-old boy on Tuesday died allegedly after being run over by Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Member of Parliament Harish Dwivedi’s car in the Basti district of Uttar Pradesh, news agency PTI reported citing police sources. 

According to a complaint filed by Shatrughan Rajbhar, the father of the deceased boy, Abhishek, the accident occurred on Saturday near the Hardiya intersection while he and other children were coming from school.

According to the complaint, Abhishek was hit by a white SUV belonging to Dwivedi just as the children arrived at a petrol pump.

Two white vehicles were allegedly driving from the Manauri side when one of them struck the child, according to Rajbhar’s complaint.

According to Circle Officer (Basti Sadar) Alok Prasad, a complaint has been launched against unknown persons under sections 279 (rash and negligent driving) and 304A (causing death by a rash and negligent act) of the Indian Penal Code, PTI reported.
