4 killed, 15 critically injured as speeding vehicle runs over Dussehra procession in Chhattisgarh

In a heart-numbing incident today, a speeding SUV plowed through a Dussehra procession in Chhattisgarh’s Jashpur, reportedly killing 4 and critically injuring 15. One deceased has been identified as Gaurav Agarwal, 21.

The crime which was captured on video shows a peaceful procession of saffron-clad Hindus being ruthlessly crushed by the SUV, leaving several dead. The vehicle was reportedly carrying a large quantity of ganja (marijuana).

The driver of the SUV was caught by locals and thrashed. The two occupants of the SUV – Radheshyam Vishwakarma, 21, and Shishupal Shahu, both from Madhya Pradesh – have been arrested.

It remains to be seen how many media personnel and politicians will make a beeline to Jashpur, like they did for Lakhimpur Kheri. Will SC take suo motu cognizance of this dastardly cold-blooded murder, where, unlike the Lakhimpur incident, the vehicle was not attacked in any way causing the driver to lose control and crash into the crowd?

But since this incident occurred in a state currently ruled by the ‘secular’ Congress, and as there is no political mileage to be derived from it, we can expect all political parties and other pillars of the Indian State to treat this as a routine law & order problem and push it onto the back-burner.

Also, its not like Muslim or Christian processioners were crushed to death – the majority Hindus need to be ‘patient’ and not expect any favors from the secular state; law will take its own course, as they say. Just like law is taking its own leisurely course with regards to prosecuting the murderers of Kamlesh Tiwari.

We will update the story as we get more details.

  1. Hindus will continue to suffer because of their non-violence stance and belief in the religion of peaceful coexistence. As a result, they have been driven out from Persia to Afganistan to Pakistan & finally on the east of Hindukush mountain through centuries. These anti-Hindu extremists cannot be tamed by sweet word or by parable. They must be dealt with iron handed such as China’s handling of Uighur and Israel’s response to Hamas & terrorist outfits of Paletinians. Israel’s philosophy of survival is as simple as clear: If you find your enemy approaching, wake up and kill him first before he kills you.
