Reports suggest that the motorcyclist, who worked for private taxi service, was on his bike at a high speed at night on Wednesday, when the accident happened.
Four police constables have been suspended and a First Investigation Report has been filed for causing death by negligence, said the Deputy Commissioner of Police, North-West.
The youth’s family said “There were two barricades on either side of the road which were joined by a thick wire. As there was no light on the road, he couldn’t see the wire.”
Police confirmed that there was cut around the victim’s neck and he died on the spot. “During the investigation, we found negligence on the part of area Station House Officer, four beat constables and division staff.” The SHO, Arvind Kumar, has been sent to the district lines for questioning, said Deputy Commissioner of Police Aslam Khan.
Mother of the 21-year old said that, “police must punish all those behind the fatal negligence.”
