Gujarat Police Files Case Against Man Who Died After His Bike Collided With A Cow

Sanjay Patel, 28, died after two cows suddenly came in the way of his motorcycle on an Ahmedabad highway last September – the collision hemorrhaged Patel’s brain. Yet the city’s traffic cops have made Patel’s father file an FIR against his own deceased son, under section 279 of the IPC, which affirms that ‘rash driving’ was responsible for his death.

Patel, a resident of Kalol, worked at a car dealership. The accident occurred near Chharodi on SG Road. The traffic department’s deputy commissioner of police (administration), Tejas Patel, said: “Across the 14 traffic police stations in the city, not a single case has been registered under provisions of accidental death.” He said so far only FIRs under various sections of road accidents have been registered.
