Man Dies of Heart Attack after Traffic Police Stops His Car

Over the past few days, the increased penalties and hefty traffic challans in India are raising debates and outrage among the public. The low and middle-class families are expressing their concern and worry over huge amounts of fees for violating traffic rules. The latest news of a 35-year-old man from Noida dying of heart attack after his car was allegedly stopped by traffic police is bringing in more fury and shock among the public.

The man, who died of a heart attack, was working for a software company, and he was asked to stop his car in order to check his licence and car papers. His father has now filed a complaint stating that traffic cops have misbehaved with them during the checking. This sad incident took place in Ghaziabad. The IT professional was a diabetic and had no other health issues.  He was travelling along with parents when the cops intercepted him for checking.  

Vaibhav Krishna, SSP Gautam Budh Nagar said: "He died during the process of checking itself and it was due to heart attack. He also confirmed that there was no misconduct from the traffic police's side. However, the deceased father cries that they did not violate any traffic rules but were brutally treated. He said the cop started beating their car with a lathi after which his son suffered from a heart attack.

"In spite of wearing a seat belt, a traffic policeman started striking on the car with his lathi. My son stopped the car and was so shocked that he fell there only. We rushed him to the hospital but he was declared brought dead," said the father. He became emotional by saying that "I would not have to see this day had the traffic policemen spoken softly. I have lost my young son, my 5-year-old granddaughter has lost her father. I don't know who is going to look after her future. I am 65 already. Who is going to raise her now and take care of her future (cries)".
