Criminals run truck over UP sub-inspector
Lucknow, May 17 (IANS) In yet another evidence of the rampant criminalisation of Uttar Pradesh and their brazen functioning, suspected criminals ran a truck over a police sub-inspector in Deoria district, killing him and critically injuring a police constable, police said.
The incident took place late Wednesday night when a small police team was checking vehicles near the Phulwaria Chauraha in Deoria district, some 290 km from here.
According to police, Sub-Inspector Uday Pratap Singh while checking vehicles got suspicious on a truck and signalled the driver to slow down. The driver, however increased the speed of the vehicle and ran over the sub-inspector. Another cop standing on the road was also hit.
The truck, which was going from Salempur to Bihar, sped away. The injured sub-inspector and the constable were rushed to a nearby medical facility, Station Officer Bhatparrani Gopal Tripathi told IANS.
Instructions were issued to forward posts on the border to intercept the truck and arrest the driver. The truck driver however has crossed over to Bihar, Tripathi added.
Officials also have begun exploring on the apparent 'consignment' the truck was carrying that triggered panic and killing of the cop.
