By | July 13, 2023



A heated argument between a 28-year-old man and a dumper driver in Goregaon, Mumbai turned fatal when the man, identified as Narendra Pawar, was dragged for 400 meters while clinging to the window of the heavy vehicle before falling onto the road. Despite being rushed to the hospital, Pawar succumbed to his injuries a day later. The dumper driver has been arrested on charges of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

The incident occurred when Pawar and his friend, Yash Khopre, went for tea on Khopre’s motorcycle. On their way back, an altercation broke out between Pawar and the dumper driver, who had previously exchanged words with him. Angry at the driver’s expletives, Pawar urged Khopre to block the dumper’s path so they could confront him. Khopre, a delivery boy, captured videos of the dumper and its driver to document the confrontation.

Determined to address the issue, Pawar climbed onto the driver’s side of the dumper to confront him face-to-face. However, the driver unexpectedly started the vehicle, leaving Pawar hanging perilously from the window. Khopre, realizing the danger, pursued the dumper on his motorcycle.

Tragically, Pawar was dragged for 400 meters and sustained severe leg injuries as the dumper approached the divider. Unable to hold on any longer, he fell onto the road, suffering extensive head, nose, and leg injuries. Pawar was immediately rushed to the Trauma Care Hospital and later transferred to Sion Hospital, but unfortunately, he passed away on Tuesday.

The Goregaon police registered an FIR and promptly arrested the dumper driver, Parmatmaprasad Sahani, on charges of culpable homicide not amounting to murder. Pawar’s family, including his ailing father and pregnant sister, mourned the loss of their sole breadwinner and called for the strictest punishment for Sahani.

This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the importance of resolving conflicts peacefully and avoiding confrontations that can escalate into fatal situations. It also highlights the need for road safety and responsible driving to prevent such accidents from occurring..
