A biker was involved in an accident with another biker and thereafter was left to die on the highway of Beed district in Maharashtra. The story does not end here. A horrific video of the accident that was shot by one of the bystanders show that the man was left to engulf in flames while cars, two-wheelers and people went past by without halting to help.

According to a report in NDTV, the biker collided with another biker on the highway of Beed district, around 8 hours away from Mumbai. Following the collision of the two bikes, while one biker got trapped under the wreckage of the bike and died on the spot, the other died later in hospital.

Police was reported saying to the website that the victim could not shout for help because he went unconscious due to head injury caused by the accident. By the time, police reached the spot to help the victim, his body was burnt beyond identification. The incident did not disrupt traffic movement, because none of the vehicles or pedestrians bothered to halt and settle down the flame even, forget about recovering the victims from the spot.

Senior police officer G Sreedhar said to the website, "We are yet to establish who the victim is. Since the number plates on the bike were burnt, we are unable to get much details about the victim. All we could tell from the plates was that the bike was registered in Parbhani (a town nearby). We have given the plate to the Regional Transport Office, which can give us details.”
