A Delhi court has acquitted a bus driver of the charges of rash and negligent driving leading to a death of an auto driver, saying that driving at a high speed does not amount to rash or negligent driving.
Family members of a 39-year-old man, who died after being run over by a rashly-driven vehicle here last year, have been awarded a compensation of over Rs 20 lakh by a Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT).
Observing that punishment for rash
and negligent driving was essential as a deterrent, Madurai
Bench of the Madras High Court has confirmed the conviction on
the driver of a tractor which ran over a four-year-old girl.
