Video proof of Muslim man jumping in front of Kanwariyas’ truck saves situation from turning communal

On Tuesday, news spread of a man named Wahid had died after coming under a truck that was carrying Kanwariyas or Shiv devotees. The incident occurred in Deoband, Uttar Pradesh along the Saharanpur-Mujaffarnagar highway when the devotees were heading towards Haridwar in a convoy of trucks.

Soon a crowd assembled at the spot and a crowd started gathering at the home of Wahid too. The police administration started fearing that the situation could worsen, considering the nature of the incident where a Muslim man had died after being crushed by a truck carrying Hindu devotees.

But the emergence of a video of the incident, along with prompt deployment of forces ensured that the situation didn’t spiral out of control.

Below is the reported video of the incident: *Disclaimer – Some users might find the visuals distressing*

As seen in the video, the man in question suddenly jumped in front of the rear wheel of the mini-truck and died on the spot as a result. The video of the incident, which was clicked by a man named Alok who was filming the passing of the convoy, soon went viral on social media.

After the accident was reported, the SDM Ram Vilas Yadav, CO Siddharth Singh and Chief Police Officer Pankaj Tyagi reached the spot along with the police force and started taking stock of the situation. The family of Wahid soon arrived but they flatly refused to give permission for a postmortem.

According to the police, the family members haven’t yet accused anyone in the case and have stated that they had no intention of pursuing this case.

The police later stopped the truck and questioned its passengers. They were soon released as it became clear that it was not the fault of the driver or the passengers.

Reports claim that Wahid was a mechanic and was near the union office in connection with his work when the incident occurred. He was the eldest among the 9 siblings in their family.

Wahid was later buried at a graveyard on Majnuwala road. The police has stated that they are investigating all the aspects of the case but prima facie it looked as if it was a suicide, even though the motive still remains unknown. A Police team has been formed to investigate the incident and to ascertain whether it was an accident or a suicide.
