Default Road-rage : Tiff over parking, IAF pilot stabbed to death

Just saw this in ibnlive.com. Another example of what uncontrolled temper can do.



New Delhi: An Indian Air Force pilot was stabbed to death and another pilot injured, near Kasauli on Friday evening.

The 24-year-old pilot, Flight Lieutenant Anubhav Rao, was on his way to Kasuali when he was stabbed by an advocate, in an instance of road rage.

The two pilots, who were from the Ambala Air Force Base, had an argument with the local lawyer, Hari Das Tanwar, over parking. Tanwar had apparently parked his car while his wife was purchasing vegetables.

The quarrel intensified when Tanwar allegedly tried to run them over. The angry officers gave chase to Tanwar’s car and stopped it near Kasauli. They had a fight during the course of which Tanwar stabbed Rao in his thigh, cutting his artery.

IANS reports that Rao’s friend Sameer Yadav had also been stabbed.

Rao was taken to a hospital near Chandigarh, where he was declared brought dead.

Police arrested Tanwar from his home in Doon Valley and charged him with murder. Reports say that Tanwar confessed to his crime.

Police said that Tanwar was drunk when he attacked Rao, according to agencies.

Rao’s body has been sent to his hometown Hissar, for funeral rites.

IANS quoted his parents as saying, “Had his life been sacrificed in combat, our suffering would have been much less.”

Oh my God. An IAF pilot, a soldier of the country. What a complete retard that advocate must have been. That too for parking? The country loses a soldier to the temper of a goddamn advocate. Should be tried, no less.

This is so sick. May the pilots soul rest in peace. Really, road rage is assuming alarming proportions.

The lawyer needs to be brought to book but......this is India. He is a lawyer. We will see the entire lawyer community up in arms and no will be interested to fight against a fellow lawyer. So end result, the parents of the officer will find it hard to hire a lawyer willing to get justice for their son. Shame shame the IPC.

Sad about the loss of life!

But I do not see a complete picture here. What actually happened? Why should the lawyer try to run over the pilot???

And what did the pilot, who has another person with him, do by following the lawyer and 'stopping' the car. He might have thought that he has an upper hand by noticing that the lawyer was traveling with his wife, so vulnerable.

It would have been better if we had know more details. And what was used for stabbing and from where did it come?

Why blame only the lawyer? Didnt you read how the IAF pilots "chased" down the lawyer, instead of just shrugging it off. The lawyer can claim that he was being harrassed.
People should forgive and forget.

While the loss of life is indeed sad, I also think we should not blame the lawyer just like that without knowing more facts.

What if the lawyer, travelling with his wife had had to escape from the two IAF pilots and his rushing away is what was implied to be his trying to run them over?

And what did the pilots give chase and stop him on the road for? If it was the other way around (the lawyer chasing the pilots down and stabbing them) it might have been pretty evident what happened, but apparently the victims were the ones who went after him. There must have been some very strong provocation indeed, if he had to try and save himself and his wife by stabbing the Pilots.

Well maybe like it is mentioned, he was drunk out of his senses & in the resultant rage tried to run down the two & when they stopped him, he stabbed them??

Leave out the conspiracy theories boys. It's not nice at time when we are ruing the demise of a fine, young man. May his soul rest in peace & may his family have the strength to bear this terrible loss.

iraghava, isn't that the first thing cops claim when anything happens on the road? I dont think thats enough information to be honest. After my first post I read the report again and it immediately struck me how little information and detail was available from the article, but I couldn't edit the post. It's almost as if the hazy article was written by a cop himself and not a reporter. If we had more information, maybe the incident would have been clearer. That said, fact is nothing should have been stimulus enough to take a life, regardless of whether it was a civilian or a soldier.

Leaving the 'drunken' report aside for the moment; for all we know that lawyer might have had just one glass before going out with his wife, and I do think that his wife would have kept her shopping aside for the next day if she found her husband to be drunk and not in control of himself, as it is made out in the report.

It might as well have been a case of self defense, for all we know.

Yes, a life was lost and its bad. But then the How's and Why's need to be known before coming to a conclusion.

Here is a better version of the incident . Source. Times of India

CHANDIGARH: An Indian Air Force fighter pilot lost his life in an incident of road rage near Kasauli on Friday evening.

Flt Lt Anubhav Roy, 24, was stabbed by Hari Dass Tanwar, a Kasauli lawyer after a row over parking. The officer succumbed to injuries on way to Command Hospital, Chandimandir while the lawyer has been arrested for murder. The incident took place just a kilometre short of Kasauli when Flt Lt Roy and Samir Yadav Sukhoi pilots posted at Ambala Air Force station and their two friends from Delhi were on way to Kasauli while returning from Shimla.

According to police, Flt Lt Roy and Tanwar had two rounds of arguments that culminated in an apparently drunk Tanwar attacking him with a kitchen knife. When Tanwar halted his car near Garhkhal to help his wife buy groceries, Roy, whose car was behind his, objected to the way he parked, and the two had an argument. But the matter was sorted out and the officers left the place.

"After covering some distance, when they stopped to relieve themselves, Tanwar almost ran over Flt Lt Roy who was standing by his car. Furious, the officers chased his car catching up just short of Kasauli.

Lawyer attacked others too

Even as Tanwar's wife tried to pacify Flt Lt Roy the advocate stabbed him on the thigh. As the officer's wound bled all over, Tanwar attacked him again, and he fell unconscious. The lawyer then lunged at the second officer, and brandished his knife menacingly at the others," said DSP Rajinder Pathania, who is supervising investigations.

The grievously wounded officer was was rushed to Kasauli's Army Hospital and then referred to Command Hospital, Chandimandir. He succumbed to injuries on the way and his body was shifted to Parwanoo ESI hospital for postmortem examination.

"Apart from Tanwar's confession, the postmortem report has confirmed excessive bleeding due to rupture of an artery as the cause of his death. Tanwar has also confessed," the Kasauli DSP added.

Thanks MS, that gives a better picture of the incident. Imo only the lawyer is to be blamed for this incident. His ego must've got hurt during the argument and maybe this provoked him enough to run down the pilot. And since he's a lawyer, he must've got extra confident as he knows the law and ways to escape if needed be.

May the young pilot's soul rest in peace.
