A bleeding Nasiruddin was rushed to Calcutta Medical College and Hospital, where doctors declared him dead.

“The truck was coming from Howrah along MG Road and was taking a right turn towards Esplanade when Nasiruddin tried stopping him apparently because the driver had flouted a traffic signal,” said a senior officer of Jorabagan traffic guard.

A resident of Katwa in Purba Bardhaman district, Nasiruddin was posted at the MG Road crossing since evening.

The police have detained the truck driver. “The driver has identified himself as Nepal Yadav...,” the officer said.
