The car of former AAP legislator from Rohini, Rajesh Garg, on Wednesday drowned in a pit while he was leading a protest to fill it in Suraj Park area of the constituency.
According to Garg, who is also the chairman of district development committee of north-west Delhi, the incident took place when he joined a few locals who were demanding to fill in the 15-feet deep swamp as it had “already claimed two lives”.
“Two kids had already died falling into the pit. While we were protesting, the driver had wrongly parked the vehicle. It somehow got carried into the swamp because of the slope and before we could rescue the car, it drowned.
“The fire brigade and the police are trying to remove the car, but it has been completely damaged,” Garg said.
He, however, ruled out any foul play in the incident.
