AGRA: The family members of the victim, who died after Smriti Irani's cavalcade hit their vehicle, on Thursday said that the policemen objected when they mentioned in the FIR that the accident was caused by a car in Union HRD Minister’s convoy.
“We were not shown the car, which caused the accident and the number of the car was given by the police. The police also objected when we mentioned in the FIR that the accident was caused by a car in Smriti Irani's convoy,” victim’s son Abhishek Nagar told ANI.
“We have written letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Pranab Mukherjee, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, the UP Governor and District Magistrate,” he added.
The daughter of the victim, who died after Irani's cavalcade hit their vehicle, had on Tuesday said that she pleaded before her with folded hands but the Union HRD Minister didn't provide them any help.
However, eyewitness Manoj Chopra contradicted the statement made by the victim's daughter and said Irani came out of the car immediately and made calls for help.
Irani's convoy was caught in a car pile-up following an accident on the Yamuna Expressway on Saturday. However, Irani, who was on her way to Delhi, escaped unhurt.
In a series of tweets following the accident, the HRD Minister had earlier informed of her well-being and thanked the people for their concern.
"Tried to help the injured who were lying on the road for quiet sometime and ensured they reach a hospital. Pray for their safety," she said.
Irani said that she also ensured the people injured in the accident were taken to a hospital and thanked others for helping out.
An FIR has also been registered in connection with this accident.
