A 21-year-old motorcyclist was killed after he was run over by a container truck in northeast Delhi’s Dayalpur near Mustafabad in the early hours of Tuesday. The accident was captured in a CCTV camera installed near the accident spot. The truck driver fled along with the vehicle and is yet to be arrested.

In the video footage, a pedestrian is seen walking on the right side of the road, opposite to the vehicular movement. The biker is seen overtaking a truck from its left. The bike collided with the pedestrian and the victim fell down. Suddenly, a truck moving right behind his bike ran over him.

Deputy commissioner of police (northeast) Atul Kumar Thakur said the accident took place around 1am near Dayalpur bus stop when the motorcyclist, identified as Sonu Chauhan, was returning home after work on his motorcycle. A local resident called the police control room at 1.15 am to report the accident.

“A police team reached there and rushed the injured biker to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead. A case of rash driving and death by negligence was registered at the Dayalpur police station. Efforts are being made to identify the truck and nab the errant driver,” said Thakur.

Chauhan worked in a private factory. He lived with his family in Delhi’s Karawal Nagar.
