A four-year-old girl was killed after being hit by a Mercedes at Old Delhi road in Gurgaon around 3 pm Sunday. The driver, who worked for a family that owns the vehicle, has been apprehended. Police said the incident occurred when the girl was playing by the side of the road, near her home.

    Driver: he drove rash and majorly his fault. Next are the parents, why is a little kid playing on road?. Now comes the real culprit, HUDA and other development agencies: these greedy cowards took the farmers lands, paid them peanuts, crammed as many houses as they can in limited space and made a huge lot of money. Where are the margins? there is no play belt, no cycle lanes and no buffer between homes and the main road. Homes open their gates right on the road. go to any sane country and you will find 30-60 feet gap between road and independent houses, with cycle lanes and plenty of play area. Apparently people know nothing and throw huge money to HUDA and others, buy houses with heavy installments which are worth next to nothing. agencies and tier society that does not ask for the right things.
