Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday helped three accident victims while her motorcade was driving from Sriganganagar to Sangariya in Bikaner Division. However, two of victims died later. The third is being treated at the Ganganagar District Hospital.

Seeing three motorcyclists lying on the road, after they had reportedly been hit by a private TV van, the Chief Minister got down from her vehicle and issued instructions for the three to be taken to the hospital. She called up State Health Minister Rajendra Rathore from the spot and asked him to issue instructions to the authorities at the Ganganagar Hospital so that they were prepared to receive the three victims.

At the same time, the Chief Minister sent the Central Chemicals and Fertiliser Minister Nihal Chand and the local MLA, Gurjant Singh, with the accident victims to the hospital before proceeding for her scheduled programme under ‘Sarkar Aapke Dwar’.

“Stopped by to help accident victims’ precious life — unfortunate we have forgotten to respect human lives!” she later tweeted.

The motorcyclists had been lying on the Lalgarh Jatan Road in the Military Area for some time after being hit by a TV van. Despite her efforts, Abdul Hameed and Lala, died while Papu is being treated for critical injuries.
