Child's death: No action initiated against BBMP engineer yet

But the police seem to be doing little against the BBMP Assistant Executive Engineer beyond registering a case of causing death due to negligence (304 A of IPC) against him.

“Once the post-mortem report comes on Monday evening, we will take appropriate action against the erring official as per law. We would interrogate the eyewitnesses including some passersby to establish the chain of events leading to the child’s death,” Inspector M S Satyanarayan told Deccan Herald.

When asked about the family’s charge that the police had initially allowed for the child’s burial without an autopsy, but backed off on the doctor's insistence, he asserted that they acted as per law and did not slip up in any way. “We received the complaint only after 12:45 pm, so we rushed to the burial ground and prevented the last rites from being carried out before an autopsy,” he maintained. Efforts to contact the BBMP official concerned were futile.

Toddler mowed down

A 18-month-old toddler was mowed down by a water tanker in front of his house in Gajannan Nagar, Kamakshipalya, even as his parents watched on helplessly.
The deceased, Nandan was standing at the gates of his residence along with his parents, when a water tanker being rashly driven, knocked him down. The grievously injured boy succumbed to his injuries on the way to hospital.

Police said that Nandan’s father, Sadanand, owns a travel agency named after the boy at Anand Rao Circle. Police seized the vehicle and arrested the driver. A case has been registered.
