One killed in road rage

NEW DELHINEW DELHI, AUG. 14.AUG. 14. In what appears to be another case of road rage, a 35-year-old man driving a Toyota Qualis was killed after a person in a Maruti car hit him following an altercation over giving way in a narrow lane at Krishna Nagar in East Delhi last evening. The Maruti car driver fled from the scene.

According to the police, the incident occurred around 7 p.m. on Friday when Sushil Kumar, who worked for Mahavir Tours and Travels in Mandawli, was taking his relatives for a ride in the Qualis. He was in a lane of the Shankar Nagar-Part II area when a Maruti car came from the opposite side. The lane was so narrow that it was difficult for the vehicles to pass by.

There was an altercation between Sushil and the Maruti driver, following which the latter hit Sushil. Sushil apparently sustained serious injuries and collapsed. He was rushed to Surya Nursing Home where he was declared dead on arrival.

Meanwhile, the Maruti car driver vanished from the scene. A case has been registered at Krishna Nagar police station.
