Advocacy for strict punishment to drivers accused in ’Hit-and-Run’ incidents

Ten people of a family died as their car edged off a bridge at in Amritsar district, Punjab, India. The bridge did not have any crash railings making it highly prone to such crashes. It is criminal not to but crash railings on bridges.

It is very clearly evident that concerned PWD officials responsible for the maintenance of the Road and the Bridge failed to perform their obligatory duty of maintaining the Bridge in proper condition.

We are advocating that the concerned Executive Engineer, Sub-divisional Engineer and Junior Engineer of the PWD of the Area are booked by name under Sections 304-A (Causing death by negligence) and 337 (Causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code in the FIR.
