A tragic incident occurred in Noida, where a 76-year-old woman lost her life after being struck by a car driven recklessly inside a group housing society. The driver, who happens to be a fellow resident of the condominium, has been booked by the police for causing death by negligence. Disturbing CCTV footage reveals that the sports utility vehicle (SUV) emerged from the basement at high speed, colliding with the woman and crushing her body.
The victim, Krishna Narang, was returning home from the local temple in Mahagun Modern Society, Sector 78, when the incident took place around 1 pm on Wednesday. Witnesses who witnessed the accident promptly rushed to Narang’s aid, and she was immediately transported to a hospital. Tragically, she succumbed to her injuries during treatment.
Eyewitnesses reported that the accused driver, Gaurav Walia, accompanied Narang to the hospital, along with three private security guards from the society. Shocking footage reveals that several passersby gathered at the scene, some even attempting to rescue the victim. However, despite their efforts, she could not be saved. The police have stated that Narang suffered severe injuries to her head and other body parts.
Deputy Commissioner of Police in Noida, Harish Chandra, shared, “Krishna Narang was taking a stroll inside the complex when the car came out of the basement and hit her. Its wheel passed over her body. The driver admitted her to a private hospital and informed her family members. She died shortly after. Her family members did not file any complaint with the police.”
Although no immediate complaint was registered by the victim’s family, a report was eventually filed by the society’s security supervisor, Kaushal Kumar, leading to the lodging of an FIR (First Information Report) at the local Sector 113 police station. The police have charged the accused under sections 279, 338, and 304A of the Indian Penal Code, which pertain to negligent driving, causing grievous hurt due to negligence, and causing death by negligence, respectively. As of now, the driver, who resides in the same society, remains at large, as the police have yet to apprehend him.
This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the importance of responsible driving and the need to exercise caution within residential premises to prevent such avoidable accidents..
