Corpse run over by 60 cars on Pune-Mumbai Expressway
Another similar incident happened last week which clearly exposed the inhuman apathy of the passerby where a man after being knocked by a speeding car on Pune-Mumbai Expressway was run over by nearly sixty vehicles. The police collected the remains of the dismembered corpse and later ascertained the deceased person’s identity from a document that was recovered from his shirt’s pocket. According to the police, the bloodstains were spread over 150 metres on the road. Owing to dim light, the motorist might not have been able to spot the corpse and ran over it. Moreover, they were also scared over the fact that they might stand a chance of getting hit by other vehicles that were advancing from behind.
