A security guard who was badly injured after being hit by a delivery van on Wednesday died on the road in West Delhi’s Hari Nagar area but no one came to his help despite several passers-by seeing him writhing in pain and one of them even went near him to take away his mobile phone, police said.
The whole incident was captured on a CCTV camera installed near Meraj cinema in Subhash Nagar where 35-year-old Matibul was hit by a delivery van in the wee hours, police said.
Matibul was walking back to his home near Tihar village when he was hit by the van around 3 AM. The entire incident as well as the injured Matibul lying on the road and people passing him without any reaction was recorded by the CCTV camera, a police officer said.
The recording also showed that a rickshaw puller came near him and took away his phone, he said.
The victim was a native of West Bengal and lived in a rented accommodation near Tihar village.
Police said they received information about a body lying on the road in Subhash Nagar at 7 AM, following which a team was rushed to the spot who took it for autopsy.
Efforts are being made to identify the driver of the van who hit the deceased, they said.
