Hyderabad, Jan 18: The Hyderabad traffic police on Tuesday shared the video of a gory accident depicting a 19-year-old B Com student on a scooter jumping the red light and getting hit by an RTC bus.

The girl is seen riding the scooter without wearing a helmet. The accident took place at around 7:30 am when she jumped the signal avoiding two oncoming cars at Nampally's Mozamjahi market crossroads to be hit by the bus ramming her head on to the road.

The cops' act of posting the video has traumatised the girl's family, though they did it with the intention to convey the message that the girl violated the traffic rules and invited the accident herself. Rittika, the girl is under critical condition and has been kept under 48 hour observation in the ICU of Care Hospital.

"There is no guarantee that those who saw the video will become ruleabiding road users, but it is certain that the traffic cops have traumatized the victim's family and all others by posting the video. Senior heads should roll for this inhuman act," said a parent. 

"This is a clear human rights violations. Anybody in their right senses would not put up such gory pictures for public viewing," said Sai Prakash, an executive in a private firm.

Meanwhile, C V Anand, Additional Commissioner, Traffic, Hyderabad was unavailable for comments.

"In the past also we have put up such videos where rule violation is the cause of the accident," said Ashok Kumar, Deputy Commissioner of traffic trying to justify the act.

The traffic police are being blamed by Facebook users for not being present at such a busy traffic junction during busy hours.

Meanwhile, a case has been filed against the RTC bus driver, Mahmood, who has gone missing.
