Doctors confirmed that the deceased was diabetic. The case is in the jurisdiction of Ghaziabad and we have informed Ghaziabad police for further action."
However, the father of the deceased said that his son didn't violate any rule and the Traffic policeman behaved arrogantly due to which his son suffered from a heart attack and died.
"My son was driving the car while I was sitting beside him and my wife was seated on the back seat. We were wearing a seat belt, yet a traffic policeman started striking on the car with his lathi.
