    Accident must be considered as accident if the riders is not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If he is under the influence of alcohol or drugs it must be considered as murder. For giving licence without proper test, then RTO and the relevant agents who serve these RTO's must be put in the jail. I feel sad about the death, which has happened for no fault of the victim.

    These kind of accidents are on the increase. Any amount of care is not adequate. Police inquiries will reveal details.

    Our goberment .... do not want to act on killers ,rapists and criminals which is the main reason there is no fear of law. All the ruling elites busy in looting and accumulating and have no time for common citizens. Walking on our roads is like playing with life and death. God help this country.

    They take 500 to 1000 and give license to anyone, even if they don't know basic driving principles. Even professional drives such as auto, van, bus drives don't follow rules....only lucky can survive....
