Uber Cab killed four Delhi University students while they were travelling in a parked truck near Sector 16. The incident took place on Friday morning.
The name of the victim has been identified as Kaayum Pegu (20). Her condition is critical, said police. The girl has been admitted at Kailash Hospital ICU in Sector 27.
The other persons who were injured are Tanuz Kalita (19) of SGTB Khalsa College, Siddharth Pathak (20) of Swami Shraddhan and College and Akshara Badola (20) of Mata Sundari College.
The four companions were coming back from a companion's place in Greater Noida subsequent to commending a birthday gathering when the mischance happened. The Uber driver did not back off, in spite of rehashed solicitations. The speeding prompted the mishap, said the three harmed.
"The taxi driver was smoking inside the auto… He slammed a stationary vehicle at 3 am. Every one of us were harmed, yet the driver got away with minor wounds. Rather than calling for help, he relinquished the auto and fled the spot," said Kalita. He was released after introductory treatment.
Pathak sat in the front seat alongside the driver. Pegu sat amidst the secondary lounge, flanked by Kalita and Badola, he said. Pegu was diverted from the seat and hit the windshield and the dashboard, under the mischance's effect, he said.
Pathak and Badola are recovering in the healing facility. They are out of peril, the doctor's facility staff said.
"Pegu confronted numerous cracks in the ribs and a genuine head damage. She is still on ventilator support. Pathak and Badola are out of risk. Badola has various breaks and she will experience surgery soon," said Kailash Hospital representative, BB Joshi.
The driver was captured that day. The police delivered him in court and he was discharged on safeguard. "A FIR of rash and careless driving was enlisted against the driver who was later recognized as Viresh," said Sector 20 station house officer, Amarnath Yadav.
The taxicab aggregator hasn't said any plausibility of pay and approached us to sit tight for the reaction of the insurance agency which has protected the driver and the taxicab, asserted the casualties' families.
"It appears they are not assuming any liability for the mishap and have abandoned us helpless before the protection of the taxicab driver. As such, Pegu's dad, an administration representative in Guwahati, has spent almost Rs 4 lakh. Likewise, guardians of Pathak and Badola have spent about Rs 2 lakh. Cash is running out and no one is helping," said Pegu's companion, Farjad Hazarika.
"We are tormented to find out about the mischance and are firmly drawn in with the casualties' families to give all help," said a Uber representative.
Pegu, Pathak and Kalita are from Assam. Badola is from Uttarakhand.'
