The children of a doctor killed in the accident on Saturday night had yesterday contradicted Irani's claim that she had tried to help the injured and ensure they reached hospital. NSUI activists led by their state General Secretary Mukesh Dhangar burnt an effigy of Irani at Bhuteshwar crossing.
"It was her (Irani's) moral responsibility to carry the injured to hospital on humanitarian ground. The accident took place due to rash driving by her cavalcade. A case should be registered against the driver," Dhangar said.
