Irani’s expressway accident: Victim claims cops ‘forced’ him to write ‘wrong’ car no.

Days after HRD Minister Smriti Irani escaped unhurt in an accident on the Yamuna Expressway, the son of the doctor who was killed in the same accident has written a letter to President Pranab Mukherjee claiming that he was forced by the cops to give the wrong car number in the FIR.

Abhishek has written that the police station in-charge ‘forced’ him to mention the wrong car registration number in the complaint.

In the letter, Abhishek has accused Smriti Irani of being ‘insensitive’ and maintained that her convoy rammed into his father’s motorcycle. He further wrote that the BJP MP didn’t help even as his sister Sandali who begged her with folded hands.

The HRD minister Smriti Irani had denied that the car which hit the bike was part of her convoy. Also, the Mathura police had clarified the next day that it was not Irani’s car.

According to the report, after the car in the minister’s convoy hit my father, killing him on the Yamuna Expressway, the driver fled while Irani left for New Delhi, leaving the body of my father beside the two injured minors.

I was later forced to mention the registration number of the vehicle as DL 3C BA 5315 in the FIR. But that’s a car I have never seen. If such a car with that number plate does exist, I would like to see it. The station in-charge of Manth police station refused to register the case if I don’t mention the number in the FIR. The inspector claimed that he had seized the car, but was reluctant to show it.

The SP and circle officer of Manth region, Janak Singh claimed that nobody forced Abhishek to mention the said car number in any FIR. He did it on his part and wrote the number himself.
