New Delhi, Oct 21: A two-year-old boy died of his injuries after he was hit by a speeding vehicle here Saturday, police said.
Jagiya, who lived with his parents at Munirka in south Delhi, had gone to Ber Sarai with his 27-year-old father Pappan when the accident took place.
“At around 11 a.m., the father-son duo was standing near a road of a colony (in Ber Sarai) when a Mahindra Scorpio (vehicle) came reversing towards them. Before Pappan could do anything, Jagiya was hit by it, due to which he suffered injuries on his head and chest,” police said.
The car was being driven by Kamal Singh, who knew Pappan’s family. They took Jagiya to Fortis Hospital in Vasant Kunj.
“Jagiya, however, succumbed to his injuries. The driver was later arrested,” the official said.
