The widow and teenage son of Sanjay Gulati, the driver of ill-fated Indigo car, are yet to come to terms with the tragedy that had befallen the family. Gulati was the sole bread winner of the family.
A resident of Jammu Tawi, Gulati started his career as a driver. Over the years, he became a successful entrepreneur by adding four more cars to his fleet. He has been in the profession for the last 15 years.
While there had been a flurry of activity in social media and otherwise demanding justice for the victims of the BMW accident, there has been no talk about justice for Gulati.
The family members feel the police department is also not doing their bit to punish the guilty.
"After the demise of my husband, I have to bring up our child alone. Our son is studying in a Kendriya Vidyalaya in Delhi. It seems the police are trying to cover-up the whole thing. We want justice and we are not ready for any compromise," said Vinita, the widow of Sanjay Gulati.
According to the relatives of Gulati, the police refused to file an FIR on the first day. "They were not even ready to register the FIR on the same day. The police department is trying to protect the real culprit," lamented Prashant Puri, the brother-in-law of the victim.
“Rajesh Kumar, who surrendered before the police on Saturday claiming he was the BMW driver, is just an eye-wash. We want justice," he added.
However, the family is going to give a good fight. "We will reach Delhi after May 18 to fight our case," Surender Gulati, the brother of Sanjay Gulati.
Having failed to crack the case, the Gurgaon police have now pinned their hopes on the sole eyewitness, who rushed the injured members of the Chopra family to the hospital on May 5.
Not believing the claims of BMW owner Devender Sehrawat that the car was being driven by Rajesh Kumar, the police hope to establish that the number of car occupants was two, and not three. The police say the eyewitness is vital and is under police protection.
