The man, identified as Dharmendra, was among the three killed after a a speeding truck collided with around 20 vehicles on the Agra-Delhi national highway on Tuesday. A milk trader by profession, he was returning home from Mathura on his motorcycle with carrying a bag that had around Rs 1.5 lakh in cash, as per his family.
The video of the incident - which surfaced on Sunday - showed bystanders surrounding Dharmendra at the accident site and debating whether to hand over the money to the police or to keep it for themselves, or help him.
"Utha lo, paisa utha lo' (take the money first)," a voice is heard in the background. Later, some of them are seen putting the money in their bags.
"When Dharmendra did not return home we went searching for him and found his damaged bike. His bag was lying open nearby, but there was no money in it. His wallet was also missing," Dharmendra's brother, Mahendra, was quoted as saying by Times of India.
He added that the family called the police and was informed that Dharmendra had been taken to the hospital, where he was declared brought dead. He added, " It would have been acceptable if the people who took the money also helped him get treatment. They should have tried to take him to a hospital."
The police have assured of action in the matter. "We have taken cognisance of the video. An FIR will be registered based on the complaint moved by the family members of the deceased," said DCP Suraj Kumar Rai, according to TOI.
This incident comes after a similar situation on December 27 last year, where a crowd took advantage of a pile-up on the national highway connecting Agra with Firozabad and looted birds worth Rs 2.5 lakh from a chicken-laden loader even as the distressed driver kept shouting for help.
