New Delhi: In a shocking tale of apathy, a security guard who was badly injured after being hit by a delivery van on Wednesday died on the road in west Delhi’s Hari Nagar area. No one came to his help despite several passersby seeing him writhing in pain. What is more appalling is that one of them even went near him to steal his mobile phone, police said.

The whole incident was captured on a CCTV camera installed near Meraj cinema in Subhash Nagar, where 35-year-old Matibul was hit by a delivery van in the wee hours, police said.

Matibul was walking back to his home near Tihar village when he was hit by the van around 3 am. The entire incident as well as the injured Matibul lying on the road and people passing him without any reaction was recorded by the CCTV camera, a police officer said.

The recording also showed that a rickshaw puller came near him and took away his phone.

The victim was a native of West Begnal and lived in a rented accommodation near Tihar village.

Police said they received information about a body lying on the road in Subhash Nagar at 7 am, following which a team was rushed to the spot who took it for autopsy.

Efforts are being made to identify the driver of the van who hit the deceased, they said.
