An Assam minister allegedly crept away after a car in his convoy killed a 65-year-old man on the outskirts of a central Assam town on Tuesday morning. Eyewitnesses said the Ambassador car ,which veterinary & HAD minister Khorsing Engti was traveling in, hit Bongshidhar Bora around 10.30 am.
The latter, riding a bicycle, was about to enter the compound of his house on the highway at Morikolong on the outskirts of Nagaon town. The man was rushed to the Nagaon Civil Hospital where he was declared dead an hour later. “The car, apparently trying to catch up with the escort vehicle ahead, overtook another vehicle at high speed and hit the cyclist. As the old man was thrown off, the car stopped but only for the minister and his PSO to be whisked away in the escort vehicle,” said local resident S. Sharma. The police, however, refused to register it as a hit-and-run case.
