A 45-year-old cab driver succumbed to his injuries in Greater Noida on Monday after he was allegedly attacked by three passengers who boarded his vehicle. The incident took place on Sunday when Aftab Alam, a resident of Trilokpuri in Delhi, was ferrying three passengers to Delhi.
The 20-year-sold son of Alam, who recorded his father’s last call on A Sunday night, minutes before his death, alleged that he was forced to say Jai Shri Ram. In the audio, the accused can be heard laughing and saying Bol Jai Shri Ram… and then Bhai tu Jai Shri Ram bol a few seconds that later, as per The Wire.
However, the police has denied any communal angle and said Alam could have been killed after an argument over fare.
