New Delhi: Two days after Smriti Irani tweeted about helping the injured after a highway pile-up in which her car was also caught, the young daughter of a doctor who was killed has come out with a different story.
Ramesh Nagar, an Agra-based doctor, was killed after a car in the minister’s convoy hit him on the Noida Expressway, his family has alleged in an FIR or police complaint.
Dr Nagar daughter Sandili alleges that he died on the road after getting no medical help. Sandili and her younger cousin also on the bike and were going to a wedding with him.
Sandili Nagar alleges that she pleaded for help but “Smriti Irani ignored us”. She and her cousin allegedly waited for several hours for first aid.
“The HRD minister’s car hit our bike, which was at slow speed. Our bike fell. I asked for help but they said no. They said you can get help later. If she wanted, she could have helped us. If she had helped us, my father would have been there with us,” said Sandili.
She claimed that Ms Irani walked out of her car, which was damaged, got into another car and drove off.
Ms Irani was on her way to Delhi after attending a BJP youth convention in Mathura when the accident allegedly took place.
“Unfortunately, the police vehicle before mine and my car also crashed,” tweeted the minister.
