They also said that the boy was wearing a helmet and was on the right side of the road when a car hit him from behind. His father says that Karan joined Zepto about two months ago to help support his family financially and save money for his sister’s wedding in November. “I work at a golf club in Gurgaon and don’t make much money.
“He wanted to help me financially, but he’s dead now,” said the 50-year-old man who was going to Haridwar to do the last rites. Karan’s father also said that he usually went to deliveries with his friends, but that day he went alone because the place was close to their house. Later, his friend called and told them that Karan had been in an accident. When he got there, his son was lying next to the railing. Karan’s father told him that he was badly hurt and that his scooter was broken.
Karan was taken to the ICU, and on Wednesday, he died there. At the Dwarka South police station, a case has been filed under the Indian Penal Code’s sections 279 (driving too fast) and 304A (causing death by negligence). No one was there to see what happened, and the person who called the police just saw the victim lying on the road. “Karan was in such bad shape that we couldn’t take his statement,” an officer said.
