A biker succumbed to his injuries he had received after his neck got stuck in a wire tied between two police barricades in west-Delhi’s Netaji Subhash Place area on Thursday, a police officer said.

An inspector has been transferred and four constables suspended over the ‘accident’, police said.

The victim has been identified as Abhishek, a private cab driver.

He was returning to his residence in Netaji Subhash Place at 1 am, when he failed to spot the wire attaching the two barricades. As he tried to cross through, Abhishek’s body rammed into the wire and he fell off the bike.

“When he reached near the Subhash Place police station, he was passing through four police barricades, his neck got stuck in the wire that was tied between two of the barricades. He died on the spot,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Aslam Khan said.

“During investigation, we found negligence on the part of area Station House Officer, four beat constables and division staff. We have sent SHO Arvind Kumar to the district lines for questioning.

“The four beat constables and the division staff have been suspended for negligent behaviour on duty,” she said.
