New Delhi: The post-mortem of a hotel
manager, who died in a road rage incident in a posh market
here, was conducted on Thursday by a medical board with police
saying they will await for the report to take further action.
Rajiv Jolly Wilson (37), the manager of an Italian
restaurant, was mowed down allegedly by a pilot Rajiv Aggarwal
(37) after their car collided on Tuesday.
"The post mortem was conducted today. We hope to get the
preliminary report in one or two days. Once we get it, we see
whether to evoke harsher charges against Aggarwal," a senior
police official said.
Police had slapped charges of causing death due to
negligence and rash and negligent driving as investigators
felt that the incident was "unintentional".
Aggarwal, the Jet Airways pilot, was released from police
custody yesterday as the charges against him were bailable.
The family of the victim has alleged that the police were
under pressure not to invoke more stringent charges against
the pilot, a claim which has been denied by the police.
Wilson lost his life on Tuesday when the pilot allegedly
ran his car over him following an altercation after their
vehicles collided. After the collision, Jolly came out of his
car and allegedly entered into an argument with the pilot
besides thrashing him.
"Aggarwal was inside his car. Suddenly he took a sharp
turn. Jolly fell down and was run over," the official said.
The official said it appeared that Aggarwal did not do it
intentionally. "The pilot was trying to enter the market when
the collision took place. After that, he was thrashed
allegedly by Jolly.
"As the pilot tried to drive away, Jolly fell down after
his leg got caught in the rear wheel. There was little space
between the car and footpath where Jolly was standing. His
injuries were on the right side of his body. He apparently
died due to the fall," the official said.
A forensic team also collected specimen from the spot
