Savitha Awadhiya, the mother of Aneesh Awadhiya, told NDTV that the accident could be called a murder.

"It is the boy's mistake, you can even call it murder, because if he had not made such a big mistake, no one would have died. If only his family members had paid attention, then today my son would have been alive. This is straight up murder," she told the channel.
