Communication Failure Costs a Life! Weak Connectivity Delays Emergency Response in Pragati Maidan Tunnel

New Delhi: Due to a communication difficulty inside the 1.3 km long tunnel, a teenager hurt in a bike accident in Delhi’s Pragati Maidan tunnel passed away before reaching the hospital. Rajan Rai, 19, met with an accident within the tunnel on Monday night while travelling back from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh, according to the police. The inability of bystanders to call the police in distress due to weak connectivity inside the tunnel delayed the arrival of the emergency services.
