An eyewitness who was present where the mishap took place said that DSP was standing near his official vehicle when he called out the dumper driver to stop, which was carrying illegal quarrying material. But, the driver didn’t stop and ran the truck over the DSP.
After crushing the DSP to death, the driver ran away. However, the police has launched a manhunt to catch the accused.

State government blamed by Congress
In a reaction to the incident, Congress blamed the BJP-led government – Haryana CM Manoharlal Khattar – and questioned the law and order situation of the state. Haryana Congress tweeted that “ML Khattar, what did you turn our state into? Neither MLAs are safe here, nor the police. What will happen to the general public? It’s very sad news. May his soul rest in peace and we pray that his family get justice soon.”
