  1. That time one police man also pass from there but he didn’t stop an ask about the incident or try to divert the vehical to other side.
    that means they don’t know there responesblities.

  2. As i was present there with my friends after the incident occurred around 2.30am. actually this incident has taken place around 12.30 am. But the local residing were chopping the tree an takin woods for there use. But those people didn’t even try to alert forest department or police. an didn’t even block the road to avoid accidents.

    i and my friends have done our duty by blocking the road from one side. an keeping the vehicals away from the tree…
