Dr. Deepak Amrapurkar, gastroenterologist of Bombay Hospital did not die an accidental death. This is nothing but manslaughter by negligence triable under section 304. How dare the municipality leave open manholes in the rainy season? Have they no sense of duty?
The family of Dr. Deepak Amrapurkar should file a case of death due to negligence and improper maintenance of the public roads and facilities by concerned authorities and make the government accountable for this. Unless someone takes up this issue, this sort of disasters will continue. Shame on the BMC, its officers and its politicians! Aditya Thackeray, what do you have to say about this?
