New Delhi [India], May 31 (ANI): The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) on Wednesday offered job to the wife of e-rickshaw driver who was beaten to death after he opposed two men urinating in public in the national capital. NDMC mayor Preeti Aggarwal gave a job letter to the deceased e-rickshaw driver's wife. Earlier, condemning the murder, Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu assured that the culprits will not be spared. Taking to Twitter, Naidu said it was sad indeed that the driver lost his life while he was promoting Swachh Bharat. The e-rickshaw driver was allegedly beaten to death earlier on Saturday evening in GTB Nagar after he prevented two students from urinating near the Metro station. As per the locals, two boys were drinking alcohol and were urinating near the metro station, which was opposed by the E-rickshaw driver. In order to take revenge, the boys later returned in the night to carry out the shocking act. "14-15 men came together and started beating the man. Nobody came to help him. The man was beaten to death as the boys filled towels with stones and brutally thrashed him. They even started beating me. Somehow I was able to run away from here to ask for help," said one of the e-rickshaw drivers who is also an eye witness. According to another witness, the boys were possibly from Delhi University's Kirori Mal College, as one of the E-rickshaw drivers, Pramod dropped them in front of that college that evening. "The boys who did this, later in the evening went to Kirori Mal College, we can identify them. We even asked the police to search the CCTV footage, but they are not even ready to do so," said Pramod.
