Killer gate crashes on kids, 6-year-old dead, 2 hurt

Tragedy struck three poor families in Kashimira after a six-year-old boy who was crushed under the iron gate of a housing complex near their tenements, succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment at the government-run hospital in Mumbai yesterday evening.

While the deceased has been identified as Aryan Shinde, two other children – Anuj Awhad and Ansh Awhad, aged six and five years, have been seriously injured in the mishap and are under treatment.

According to the police the incident was reported from a housing complex located near the MIDC industrial area in Kashimira on Sunday.  The kids who hail from poor families reside in the cluster of tenements in the vicinity of the complex and were playing near the entrance when the huge iron gate crashed on them.

All the children were first rushed to a private hospital, however, a profusely bleeding Aryan whose condition was critical owing to deep head injuries was shifted to Sion Hospital. After battling for life for more than 36 hours, Aryan succumbed to his injuries yesterday. The police had registered  a case under Section 337 and 338 of the Indian Penal Code against unidentified accused in context to the injuries borne by Anuj and Ansh.

However a case under Section 304 (a) for causing death due to negligence was yet to be slapped against those responsible for such  glaring laxity leading to Aryan's  death. “We are awaiting reports of the deceased, following which Section 304 (a) will be added. Investigations were already underway to ascertain as to who was was actually responsible for the crash. Those guilty will be behind bars soon,” said Senior Police Inspector Vaibhav Shingare.

“It is such an unfortunate incident. The police should take up the matter seriously and arrest those who left the gate unattended which apparently was in need of urgent repair work following which such a serious tragedy struck these poor people,” said local municipal corporator, Veena Bhoir.
