Wire tied at barricade slits Delhi biker’s throat
NewDelhi: A 22-year-old biker met a tragic end early Thursday morning when his throat was slit by a black telephone wire tied by cops across a road checkpoint in northwest Delhi. The biker was trying to cross the barricade from a side and didn’t spot the wire in time.
Eyewitnesses said the victim, Abhishek Kashyap (in picture), flew off his bike as his neck got stuck in the wire, flipped in the air and landed on his head. The chord was at a height of about 5 feet at the barricade at Shakurpur. Kashyap, a DJ, was returning from a performance at a relative’s wedding.
Another biker was injured by the wire barely minutes before Kashyap’s death, locals said. DCP (northwest) Aslam Khan said a case under sections 304A (causing death due to negligence) has been registered.
The accident happened around 1am near the three-laned F-block road leading to Kashyap’s home. The barricades were put up in the middle of both carriageways, leaving space for two-wheelers to pass from either side. However, the black wire tied across the road was nearly invisible in the dim streetlight.
Joginder, an eyewitness who owns a car-servicing shop in the area, said Kashyap had tried to go past one of the barricades from the left side. “He was probably travelling at about 50kmph. When he hit the wire, the bike skid and he was flung a few feet up in the air and landed on his head across the wire,” he said.
Locals said Kashyap lay on the road for some time before one of his neighbours, Shiva, found him and informed a friend who runs an ambulance. He was taken to the hospital where he was declared dead on arrival. Minutes before the accident, another youth had got caught in the wire. However, he escaped with minor injuries as he had managed to slow down.
