Ghaziabad: In an attempt to scare his friend, a Ghaziabad resident crushed the man’s leg under his SUV in an inebriated state. The incident occurred at a petrol pump, where his friend worked.
Kavi Nagar Station House Officer Mohammad Aslam said that the SUV driver perhaps wanted to shock the victim by driving close to him but lost control of the vehicle. The victim, Sanjay, was on duty on Wednesday evening when the SUV passed through the filling station and crushed his leg, he said.
