Two people were killed in separate accidents involving call center cabs on Friday.

In the first incident, a speeding call center cab mowed down a 52-year-old man and injured two others at a traffic intersection point around 6 am in Paschim Vihar. The police said the three victims were riding one motorcycle. The three men, all relatives, were on their way to the railway station.

Karan Singh (52), a resident of Mathura, died on the spot. The other two, his son Bani Singh and son-in-law Lakhan Singh, were badly injured and rushed to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital.

The police said that the driver fled from the spot. The vehicle belongs to a Gurgaon-based call center and was on its way to Peeragarhi. The police impounded the vehicle and registered a case of rash and negligent driving.

In another incident, a call center driver died after he rammed his cab into a stationary Blueline bus on the Mehrauli-Badarpur road at Malviya Nagar on Friday morning.

This cab also belonged to a Gurgaon-based call center. The police said that the driver, Shambu Ram (25), might have dozed off while driving. They said he was not drunk.
