KSO Sadar Hills asks accused of ‘hit and run case’ to surrender
The student body also urged the state government and concerned district police to find the accused at the earliest.
A man of Kangpokpi DHQs, who have been catering doctors and nurses and security personnel on duty at BIET COVID Care Centre, Leikop, was reportedly knocked down on the road by a loaded truck on February 2 morning and escaped and the victim is now hospitalised at Advanced Speciality Hospital and Research Institute, Imphal.
General secretary of KSO Sadar Hills, Thangtinlen Haokip said that the unfortunate incident happened between 9 am to 9:20 am on February 2 morning when the victim Kamlengou Chongloi, as usual, went to drop food for the doctors and nurses and security personnel at BIET COVID Care Centre at Leikop.
He said that according to an eyewitness, a loaded truck heading towards Imphal side hit the two wheeler vehicle of the victim injuring him to the extent of semi-conscious and led to bleeding from both the ears. The eyewitness, instead of chasing the truck, rushed to the victim so as to take him to the hospital immediately and also informed two police personnel of Kangpokpi Police Station, he added.
The victim after giving preliminary medical treatment was referred to Imphal for further investigation and treatment, and was later admitted at Advanced Speciality Hospital and Research Institute, Imphal. He is now at the High-Dependency Unit of the hospital.
Victim’s brother, Boichon Chongloi said, “since we are from an economically backward family we were worried about the hospital and medical expenses in case the accused is absconded. We have been anticipating that the truck driver would definitely find us through the concerned district police.”
KSO Sadar Hills has asked the accused (truck driver) to surrender at the earliest so as to avoid misunderstanding and intense form of agitation, including blockade of all loaded trucks along the National Highway-2. The student body also urged the state government and concerned district police to find the accused at the earliest and further appealed to look into the hardships and grievances of the poor victims.
