'They threw her into a van like garbage', says husband whose wife, child died in road accident...

A man is seen calling out while holding onto his young son as traffic streams past him. Then he sits down, holding his head, the grief and hopelessness while shouting with volumes on the mute security camera footage. While we find near him, a pink sari outlines the body of his wife. 

Absolute shockingly, the cars keep passing by. The callous indifference of those who drove by -18 cars passed without stopping according to some reports has made Kanhaiya Lal Raiger's accident an international headline. 

Mournfully, today, the man who lost his wife and baby daughter after his motorcycle clashed with a truck in a Jaipur tunnel shared details that make an impossibly bad narrative worse.

The police arranged for a pick-up van, not an ambulance, and threw his wife into it like garbage and then took them to hospital. In fact, the police has not responded to that the charge of wrongdoing so far.

He continued saying that it took 20 minutes for the police to reach him. By that time, he says, his 26-year-old wife and eight-month old daughter, had already died. 

The police claims that they reached the spot in six minutes, but refuse to furnish CCTV footage that could confirm their version. Mr Raiger and his son had minor injuries and were discharged from hospital yesterday evening. The four-year-old boy has been mournfully crying for his mother, says Mr Raiger's father.

The National Commission for Women (NCW) points out that the company that manages the tunnel operates a control room where security cameras are monitored. Moreover, NCW chairperson Mamta Sharma said that people in the CCTV control room didn't inform the police and that there was a delay of one and a half hours.

The truck that hit the family was found uninhibited, according to the police, but the driver has not been traced yet.
