A day after a 21-year-old field engineer died after an iron girder fell on him from a Rapid Metro pillar, the police have still not made any arrest in the case.
The police had on Saturday registered a case of negligence causing death under Section 304A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against Rapid MetroRail Gurgaon Limited (RMGL), the promoter of Rapid Metro project. However, RMGL officials had termed the incident as a "road accident".
The officials on Sunday said they would announce a suitable compensation for the victim's kin in a "day or two".
The accident had occurred at about 10.10am near DLF City (Phase2) Rapid Metro station when Vikas Kumar was returning home on his Bajaj Pulsar.
The sudden death of Vikas, who was all set to marry off his sister on December 5, has cast a shadow over the marriage now. However, RMGL officials have indicated that they will make sure the girl's marriage is not cancelled because of financial issues.
One held for murder
The Gurgaon police on Sunday arrested a man for stabbing a 25-year-old man to death in a parking lot over a trivial issue on Friday night.
The main accused, Parikshit Saini, a resident of Sector 5, killed Ravinder alias Rabbi along with his friends with a sword.
According to police, Ravinder had urinated in front of a car that belonged to Parikshit's brother which lead to an argument.
Ravinder had come to attend a wedding at Prajapati community centre on Sheetla Mata Road.
Earlier, Ravinder's family thought the ghastly murder was committed by one of the two groups of friends which had clashed over a change of music at the party. htc
