Thane: In a devastating incident at a wedding function in Bhiwandi, Thane, a 4-year-old girl named Alina Akram Mansuri was tragically crushed to death under the wheel of a reversing car. The incident occurred on Monday around 10:30 pm. The Bhiwandi police have registered an accidental death report (ADR) and filed a case against the car driver for negligent driving.
Alina, a resident of Nalasopara, was happily attending the wedding ceremony with her parents. According to initial information provided by the Bhiwandi police, the marriage ceremony of Samsullah Mansuri's son was taking place at Baug Yusuf building, a high-profile society in Bhiwandi city, on June 5. Alina's father, Mohammad Akram Mansuri, arrived with his family around 7 pm. At that time, guests had gathered in the hall for the reception following the marriage. Another family arrived in a Fortuner car and asked the driver to park the vehicle in the parking lot.
Car Driver had all windows closed, was watching video
The officials revealed that the driver closed all the car windows and, while watching a video, began reversing without noticing that children were playing behind the vehicle. Despite people shouting to alert the driver, he remained unaware due to his focus on the video. Tragically, Alina, who was engrossed in play, was struck hard as the driver reversed the car. She was caught under the rear wheel of the Fortuner, resulting in her immediate death.
The accident transformed the atmosphere of joy at the wedding ceremony into sorrow. Mohammad Akram Mansoori, Alina's father, shared, "I arrived with my wife and daughter from Nalasopara on a bike for the wedding. I was parking the bike while my daughter Alina was playing a few meters away from me. The driver, occupied with watching a video and with the car windows closed, began reversing. Despite many people shouting and even one person banging on his car, he did not hear anyone, and my daughter was crushed to death. He moved the car forward and reversed it again, with the second wheel passing over my daughter. We rushed her to Indra Gandhi Hospital (IGM) in Bhiwandi, where the doctor pronounced her dead on arrival. I have filed a case against the driver, and he should face strict punishment for negligent driving."
A senior officer from Bhiwandi police station stated, "Upon receiving information about the incident, we immediately reached the spot. Based on the complaint filed by Mohammad Akram Mansuri, we have registered a case against the car driver for negligent driving. Although the driver fled the scene, we will soon apprehend him."
