The incident took place around 8.30pm when Kaushik and his team were walking towards a border post to clear traffic bottlenecks caused due to waterlogging. The team members who were accompanying him said Kaushik was a few steps ahead of them near the Rajokri flyover when the vehicle hit him from behind and sped away towards Gurgaon. Kaushik was rushed to AIIMS Trauma Centre, where he was declared dead on arrival.
Cops suspect role of Mewat gang
Kaushik’s body will be handed over to his family members after an autopsy on Sunday. An FIR was registered at the Vasant Kunj (south) PS and search is on to track the vehicle. DCP (traffic), western range, Shankar Chaudhary, said Kaushik was going to brief his team after meeting senior officers. Cops suspect the killer vehicle could be a mini-truck and the role of criminals from Mewat is being probed. The Rajokri flyover is an accident-prone zone.
