ANANTNAG, Oct 27: The Deputy Commissioner Anantnag on Tuesday ordered a probe into the death of a child who couldn't get timely medical aid due traffic jamming on Anantnag-Dooru-Verinag (ADV) road in South Kashmir's Anantnag.
Deputy Commissioners Anantnag K K Sidha has directed his Additional Deputy Commissioner to conduct in-depth enquiry into the death of child.
On Sunday, a 4 year old child from Nowpora Village of Dooru swallowed a bean seed, lost his life, as the family couldn't move him to Dooru Modern Hospital in time. Deceased child is being identified as Anzar Ahmad s/o John Mohmmad Bhat, a resident of Nowpora Dooru.
"The family put the child in a private vehicle and moved towards the hospital but due to heavy traffic jamming the family couldn't reach the hospital in time and the child lost his life in the vehicle," Dooru residents told Early Times.
The residents alleged that they had brought the issue of traffic jam in the notice police and district administration but no action was taken.
"We had informed Police officials and District administration well in time but they pay any heed to our requests and concerns. We had even informed them about the unnecessary movement of heavy goods vehicles through the town; the administration did nothing to stop truckers from entering the town," they said and demanded a fair probe into the incident.
In his order, the Deputy Commissioner Anantnag has admitted that due to movement of heavy goods vehicles on Anantnag-Dooru-Verinag (ADV) road causes traffic jams.
"Whereas in order to ascertain the cause of traffic jamming, it has been reported that some heavy goods vehicles instead of playing on National Highway take to Mirbazar Ashajipora Road, Dalwach Mehmoodabad road and Anantnag Dooru Verinag road to reach Jawhar Tunnel area," reads the Deputy Commissioner's order, a copy of which lies with Early Times.
In the aftermath of this tragic incident in which a 4 year old child died in car as they couldn't reach to the hospital in time traffic jamming at Dooru, the Deputy Commissioner Anantnag has imposed complete ban on movement of heavy goods vehicles on Mirbazar Ashajipora Road, Dalwach Mehmoodabad road and Anantnag Dooru Verinag to prevent repetition of such incidents in future.
Muncipal Committee Dooru-Verinag Mohd Iqbal Ahanger has also imposed the ban on movement of heavy goods vehicles in and around municipal limits ( Dooru and Verinag) and assured stringent action against violators.
