    Airport canopy collapse: Victim’s family mulling legal action in matter


    New Delhi, Jun 29: The family of a 45-year-old cab driver who died after a portion of a canopy at the Delhi airport collapsed amid heavy rains is mulling to file a case against those responsible for his death.

    They cremated Ramesh Kumar's body at the Naharpur crematorium on Saturday.

    The police had handed over the body to his family after postmortem at the Safdarjung Hospital on Saturday, a day after the incident.

    Kumar's wife Asha and their daughters were inconsolable as the body arrived home. Younger daughter Bhawana (18) fainted after looking at her father's body.

    The family members, however, said they will take a decision on filing a different case in the matter.

    Kumar's younger daughter, an 18-year-old Bhawana fainted after looking at her father's body.

    “We received the body around 12.30 pm after postmortem and we returned to our home. He was cremated at the Naharpur crematorium,” Ramesh's 25-year-old son Ravinder said.

    He said that the family members will discuss and decide whether to file a case against those responsible for his father's death.

    The Delhi Police on Friday filed an FIR under sections related to death by negligence after the collapse of the roof of Delhi airport's Terminal-1 killed one person and injured six others. Officials said the Delhi Police has started the probe and will fix responsibility.
