The vehicle sped off, without as much as stopping to help the victim.

“I found a crowd near Oberon Mall. I asked my driver to stop the vehicle as I suspected chances of an accident. When the man was bleeding, people quarrelled with each other without any concern for him. When I approached him, he was struggling with pain. A boy among the crowd helped me to take him to the hospital,” said Jayasuriya to the English Mathrubhumi.

The victim was Dhappa, a labourer from Bengal working in Kochi.

Fortunately, Dhappy was not seriously injured and will resume work soon, his friend Parasuraman told Mathrubhumi.
