A 35-year-old man hailing from Noida in Uttar Pradesh passed away on Monday due to heart attack during a routine inspection by traffic police in the Ghaziabad city.
Allegedly, the deceased suffered a heart attack following an altercation with the traffic cop who pulled over the former in the name of checking papers.
Reports suggest that the Noida-based man, who works for a software company, was travelling with his aged parents while the unprecedented incident happened. The deceased suffered from diabetes.
Around 6 pm on Monday, the family was stopped near the CISF cut in Ghaziabad by the traffic police officials on duty in the area. Sixty-five-year-old father of the deceased man claims that the police misbehaved with his son, even though the latter had not violated any traffic rules. The cops are harassing common man in the name of the new amendment in Motor Vehicles Act, which garners extra power to the authority, the father added.
