A motorcyclist was killed Wednesday night here near the city’s Lari Adda — General Bus Stand — when a speeding police van hit his bike, rescue authorities said.
Based on rescue officials, officers in the police van got away in such bewilderment from the Badami Bagh area after hitting the 22-year-old biker that they left out a government-issued rifle.
The deceased was recognized as Sheheryar Ali, officials confirmed.
Citizens of the area, as well as passersby, took to protesting — with the body — at the road after officers from the police station, in the jurisdiction of which the accident took place, unable to turn up.
Once the demonstration against police failure and negligence started, a heavy contingent of personnel appeared.
