According to the sources, this accident could have averted if the truck was not left parked irresponsibly in that location, on the wrong side of the road. But, at the same time, the alertness of the two-wheeler rider also could have saved their own lives too. According to the reports, both the doctors were working at Maharshi Hospital in Delhi.

The police sources have said that the truck was parked on the wrong side of the road and they are on a lookout for the truck driver. A PCR van took them to Maharishi Valmiki Hospital, where Gufran was declared brought dead. Rajput was taken to Fortis Hospital, where he was also declared brought dead.

According to the police reports, both the doctors were working at the Maharshi Valmiki Hospital in Bawana, Delhi. On the night of Wednesday, both of them were traveling on their Scooty which rammed to the trailer that was parked on the wrong side of the road. 

The sources have revealed that both the doctors were found lying unconscious near the truck by a passerby, identified as Rajbir Singh, who made a call to PCR at 9.55pm. One of the doctors, Rajesh Rajput, 34 was working as Chief Medical Officer and other Gufran, 30, was a junior resident doctor, both of them were working at the casualty ward of the hospital.

According to the police reports, at around 9.55pm, the PCR van took them to Maharishi Valmiki Hospital, where Gufran was declared as brought dead while Rajput was taken to Fortis Hospital, where he was declared brought dead. “We tried to revive Rajput and then sent him to Fortis. It is such a tragedy; they were good doctors,” said Medical Superintendent Dr. Beena. Their bodies were shifted to the mortuary at B R Ambedkar hospital, where a post-mortem was conducted. The bodies were later handed over to their families. Police have traced the owner of the trailer truck and are on the lookout for the driver.           

Meanwhile one of the officers familiar with the investigation said the doctors “were not at fault as the driver had parked the truck on the wrong side of the road and did not give any indicator signaling that the vehicle was parked”. Rajput’s family told The Indian Express that they did not know when he left the house. His wife was not aware when he left with Gufran. “I told his wife, Rubi, that her husband had died in the accident. She kept telling me he never left home. She was in shock. They got married two years ago. We still don’t know why he left the house,” said Bhikam Singh, Rajput ‘s uncle.

According to the sources, both the doctors were very talented and due to their death, the hospital has lost their most capable doctors. Rajput, who hailed from Gwalior was having the medical degree from Russia and he was working with the hospital for past three years.   The junior doctor Gufran, who hails from Bihar, had been working at the hospital for the past one week. “Gufran had earlier worked at the hospital and left. He rejoined just a week ago. Both of them stayed at the staff quarters on campus,” said Dr Pankaj, a colleague.

According to one of the colleagues of the deceased, the two had left to eat snacks near Bengali Chowk at Bawana sector 3. Police said it is difficult to establish the sequence of events as there are no eyewitnesses. They are also probing the “possibility of a hit-and-run,” an officer said.“There has been damage to the rear part of the truck. The doctor driving the Scooty must have lost balance and rammed into it,” the officer said.

One of the senior officers said that both the doctors were wearing the helmets at the time of an accident but the severity of an impact took their lives. A senior officer said both doctors were wearing helmets. “But the impact of the crash must have killed them,” said the officer from Bawana police station. “One of them had head injuries while the other suffered internal bleeding. They were left bleeding in a poorly lit street and we received the PCR much later. It took a lot of time to get them to the hospital,” said an officer.

In this accident there are many factors that lead to the death of doctors, one of the reason was dimly lit road due to which they could not be spotted by the passerby and remained there bleeding for the longer period of time. These are all the speculation which follows any incident but one thing that nobody can deny is the responsibility of the drivers (rider in this case) to keep his own life safe and drive safely. What is your opinion on this serious issue? Do you think that the truck driver is alone responsible for this accident? Please do share your valuable feedback on this serious issue.
