On Saturday, a 31-year-old e-rickshaw driver was beaten to death after he stopped two people from urinating in public in northwest Delhi’s Mukherjee Nagar area. Police said that the victim, Ravindra Kumar had objected to the men urinating outside Gate number 4 of the GTB Nagar Metro station and asked them to use the public restroom which was barely five metres away. According to police, the men took offence to this and came back seven hours later with 20 men and assaulted him.

On Monday, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu visited the family of the deceased e-rickshaw driver. The Urban Development Minister also gave a cheque of Rs 50,000 to the family of the driver as compensation. Meanwhile, the Delhi government also announced Rs 5 lakh compensation for kin of e-rickshaw driver.

Naidu had earlier on Monday tweeted, “Sad that an e-rickshaw driver was beaten to death for stopping 2 people from urinating in public in Delhi. He was promoting Swachh Bharat.” He also spoke to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik asked him to take “strongest action possible” against the culprits.

According to eyewitness, the two persons, reportedly students of Delhi University, were drunk. CCTV footage, which was later handed over to police, showed the two purchasing liquor from a shop and drinking near it.

      Highest civilian order must be accorded for the righteousness and courage exhibited. Sad part that he was punished badly for it.

            Two persons including a juvenile were arrested. Why the mention of juvenile ? As if to say the juvenile was just passing by and was apprehendwd for funsake. By now the entire gagng of 14 people ought to have been arrested. The liqour vendor should also be investigated for his role in the affair as he must be knowing who these hoodlums are and must be prot3cting their iden ies feigning ignorance.

              When juvenile is Muslim, this is how media protects them, in nirbhaya brutal rape and murder case, juvenile musselman is the only who inserted iron rod in her private parts and took her intestines out. She was Hindu and still Hindus kept quiet

                Why do press utes hide rhe bame of the killers? Had they been Hindus,they would have revealed the names. As muslims have killed a Hindu man,they are hjding their names. Sic arism in journalism. Growing muslim population is a seriosu threat to India
