    In a shocking case of public apathy, a man clutching on to his son's hand lay on the road crying for help inside a tunnel next to the bodies of his wife and infant daughter with nobody stopping by for around 40 minutes after a speeding truck hit his motorcycle.

    The 26-year-old woman and the eight-month-old infant who were run over by the truck died in the accident inside the newly opened Ghat Ki Guni tunnel here yesterday while the man and his son escaped with injuries.

    Police said the injured man kept crying for help for around 40 minutes but the motorists ignored their cries and every vehicle passed by without stopping.

    The accident victims were attended to only when a staffer of a toll booth noticed the crying husband and his son inside the tunnel on a CCTV monitor.

    "Kanhaiya Lal along with his 26-year old wife Guddi, four-year- old son Tanish and eight-month-old Arushi was on his way to in-laws' house in Luniawas village from their house in Thikariya village yesterday when a speeding truck hit their motorcycle 300 metres inside the tunnel," police said today.

    Guddi and Arushi were run over by the truck while Kanhaiya and Tanish received minor injuries. After the accident, Kanhaiya called his relatives and police but there was no network coverage so he tried to stop vehicles for help only to be ignored.

    No one stepped out for help as the man holding his son sat in the middle of the road while his wife and daughter lay in an unconscious state and without knowing their fate.

    The 2.8 km tunnel bored through Jhalana hills was inaugurated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President in January this year. Two-wheelers are banned inside the tunnel.

    "A worker of toll tax booth noticed it on a CCTV monitor and informed police. The police help reached them within a few minutes and they were rushed to hospital. Soon after policemen, staffers of the toll tax also reached the spot," officiating police commissioner Biju George Joseph said.

    The woman and her daughter were declared dead and the man and his son were given treatment and discharged.

    Dr D S Meena, In-charge of SMS hospital's emergency unit, said that the two died before before being brought to the hospital.

    Shocker in Jaipur: Public shuns injured man on road even as wife, daughter lie dead - Indian Express

    Indian Police should stop harassing those who help accident victims...a friend of mine had experienced a lot of difficulties just for helping an accident victim who was hit by an unknown vehicle & was lying unconscious on road.

    He was summoned to the police station three four times for questioning (he said they questioned him like a criminal & insulted him), if they want to question they should come to our homes, like in the west.

    Feels really sad for the family...May GOD give them strength in these testing times...

    Overpopulation breeds this sort of apathy.
    It's easy to look the other way when people are valued at a dime a dozen.

    I hope they all has something more important to do, but I doubt it.

    It's true, it's the police in indirectly the ruling party who are responsible for all this.
    It is because the police demoralises and attacks the people who help that people are now hesitant to help others.

    Hope this changes soon...we don't need a police force efficient only in solving Petty Cases and charging people during Helmet & Seatbelt Checkings.
