New Delhi, Feb 28, 2020 –
Even as the life is limping back to the normal in the riot-hit areas of northeast Delhi, a minor told IANS that his father was brutally killed this morning on Friday at Shiv Vihar area.
17-year-old Bittu (name changed) along with his father worked as a rag picker in Shiv Vihar area.
“I was sleeping with my father on the road in Loni today. My father left for work around 5 in the morning. I tried to stop him from going anywhere as I was scared, but he said ‘what will we eat if we don’t earn’ and left,” said Bittu.
“He came back to me in a very bad condition. His head was bleeding. He asked me to take him to any hospital,” Bittu told IANS.
“I kept him in a cart and took him to at least three hospitals, but no one admitted him. He died as I didn’t have money. I brought him to GTB Hospital today with the help of a few people.”
Bittu belongs to Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh and had only his father as his family.
A few people at GTB Hospital plan to arrange for the last rites of his father. (Agency)
