NEW DELHI: Scores of protesters comprising locals and auto-rickshaw union members on Saturday blocked the road near Lodhi Colony police station in south Delhi, alleging police inaction in a hit-and-run incident in which a 30-year-old auto-rickshaw driver was killed.

The protest caused traffic congestion in and around Lodhi Road in the peak evening hours.

On Thursday, the auto-rickshaw driver, identified as Mohender Sah, was hit by a car near an intersection in Lodhi Road, police said.

The driver sped away leaving Sah there. Sah was rushed to a hospital where he died on Friday, police said.
