A 25-year-old mentally challenged man lost his life after being hit by a tempo at Ulhasnagar. The accused driver has been identified as Raju Dange, who was coming from the Ulhasnagar market towards Kalyan. Panchu (the deceased) had allegedly jumped in front of the vehicle. The driver hit the brakes but Panchu's head reportedly got crushed under a tyre, and he died on the spot.

The deceased has been identified as Panchu Roy, 25, who had come to Mumbai from Jharkhand, and had been staying with his nephew, Pintoo Roy. His nephew Pintoo, is a resident of the Amul Nagar area at Kalyan. On Wednesday night, Panchu was unwell and had been admitted to the Central hospital in Ulhasnagar.

According to a police officer, Panchu had complained of throat pain and a headache. During his treatment in hospital, he had attempted to commit suicide by consuming phenyl. When his nephew, Pintoo and the hospital staff tried to stop him from taking the extreme step, Panchu beat him up as well as the hospital officials. Panchu ran away from the hospital and got severely injured by a tempo while he was running along a road near the hospital.

The police officer from the Central police has booked a case under Section 304(A) of the Indian Penal code. The driver has been arrested by the police.
