“The strike is in protest against the low compensation announced by the government. Ashok Kumar (the deceased), didn’t die in an accident – he was murdered. The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi has announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh for the vitims’s family and has also said it will offer a job to his family member. The angry DTC employees rejected the state government compensation of Rs five lakhs for the victim’s family and demanded a compensation of Rs one crore instead. If all demands are met, all drivers will return to work,” Tara Chand, general Secretary DTC Bus Association said. According to reports, no passenger of the bus or any passerby came forward to save Kumar as he was allegedly attacked by the motorcyclist. They said that the man on the bike had beaten Kumar with his helmet continuously for few minutes and then fled the spot. None of the passengers of the bus came forward to help the driver, according to police.
