AHMEDABAD: In a ghastly incident that took place in the Sarkhej area on Saturday, a 40-year-old man paid with his life for colliding with an oncoming motorbike, in the course of which the oncoming rider lost his glasses.
The accident took place around 10 pm near Royal Hotel in Makarba.
According to a complaint - that appears to be straight out of a Bollywood script - lodged by the deceased's wife, Khatoonbibi, at the Sarkhej police station, Abdul Gaffoor accidentally collided with Sirajuddin Shahbuddin Shaikh, who was on a bike (GJ1 CH 7170). Shaikh's glasses were damaged in the accident.
Seething with rage at the loss, Sirajuddin drove his bike at full speed right between Abdul Gaffoor's legs, knocking him over. He then turned around and drove over his chest and legs, injuring him badly.
The victim was admitted to hospital where he succumbed on Sunday. Late on Sunday, the police arrested the accused, Sirajuddin Shahbuddin Shaikh.
Abdul Gaffoor was a resident of Rajivnagar in Makarba.
